THOUGHTS

The door behind the metal fencing leads into a building that once housed Tit-Bits. One night, a few years ago, I was walking down Exeter Street with a friend when we noticed the door was ajar. We did not trespass. However, since that night, I have regretted not going through the door and taking a look around the building.
