Someone I know moved out of a particular area in 1976. I was there recently and took a picture of his old house and showed it to him. And he got upset because the current owners remodeled it and kept it up. “That’s not how I remember it!!”, he complained. Well, he hasn’t been there in 45 years!!! What’s it supposed to be, a shrine to him?? The old drive-in and grade school in my old neighborhood were demolished years ago and it’s a strip mall now. And so what Good for them! I’m sure that suits their purposes better than some old building I haven’t been in for decades just because I had memories there. “Take paradise and put up a parking lot?” Meh.
