In Joices Yard – the Ghost of a Building

Joice’s Yard – once a stable yard, then the site of John Joice’s coach building business – is now a small town centre car park. It is surrounded by interesting buildings. This is one such; or perhaps it is two. For where the road cuts through from Winchester Road into the yard, this substantial property can be seen to bear, upon its end, the revenant of a former neighbour.

I find this sort of thing fascinating. So much so, indeed, that I painted this “ghost building” twice.
