Walking into Dreams that Dwell

Panmure Villa now known as Armistead House,

once used as a convalescent home for small children.

P1110676

 It changed and reformed into a large formidable house,

a fortunate children’s home for discarded childhood.

P1110664

Could laughter echo, was there space for love?

Time passes and society convert’s, a children’s home no longer in use.

P1110687

Even the child development center was not a lasting retreat,

Now the building lies dormant with a trace of what stood.

P1110682

A property developer has a changing vision,

will children still dwell?

P1110671

no-longer the villa, a house, the home or center,

and a new invested dream will develop and sell.
