Hutchings and Sharp Interior: Part 3

It's been over a year since my last visit to the Hutchinson Block, the former home of Hutchings and Sharp in downtown Medicine Hat, Alberta. I was contacted recently about a potential project and was asked to come by and have a look at the work that's been done since the property was purchased. 

This building used to be like a western museum with all of the random things that had previously been left behind. Here were my shots of the old interior. The location is now in the process of becoming a high-end tattoo parlor that will see the space dramatically transformed (as it already has been). 

The original tin ceiling that found under the wooden boards is going to be preserved, along with a few other historic / architectural details of the building. The old storefront shop windows have now been removed, and a beautiful glass entrance will later replace it. The plans for the space look really impressive, and I'm just happy that someone is utilizing this space and making it relevant again. History is all well and good, but if no one steps up buildings like this simply fall apart.
