This FB is still there but by 2014, 'damaged' understates the situation somewhat. This property has been harled and painted in a very amateurish manner. The flush bracket is all but covered, leaving only the recess and one staff hole still visible. Ruined by shoddy workmanship! Not worth photographing.
