Seeing The Renovations As They Happen, Well Kind Of…

Another page from my 2012 travel diary as Family Kiwidutch take visiting Singaporean friend “Velveteen” on a whirlwind tour of as many European places and adventures as we can.

At this point of our travels we can be found in Luxembourg City and we are checking out the local sights.

There are some renovations going on in and around Luxembourg’s Place Guillaume II  main central city square, and I was just in time to photograph two workmen straightening out and then rolling up a massive poster.

Sadly there was no Hollywood moment where a hero or villain crashes through the paper making good an adrenaline filled speedy escape  (clearly I have an over-active imagination) but I waited a moment in hope anyway.

Other billboard posters on the large protective fences show us just how much work is going on behind the scenes, and I love this kind of thing. After all if you are going to inconvenience people by closing public and historic buildings why not take the chance to show the work in progress, the projected final result and a bit of history whilst you do it.
