aged to ruin -

Historic Mayaro.2 - Book Club Lime (Saturday October 13th) continues...
When we get to the old post office, which was opened in 1921, we garner from 82 year old Michael Anthony, this place as extremely special to him; which he attributes to the genesis of his career as a writer. It was here, next door, in a carat house, he lived with his mother.
His life experiences, growing up next to this building, influenced the writing of his novels, two of which he made mention - The Year In San-Fernando and also Green Days By The River
a thousand pleas fill our hearts
It was however, quite redeeming, to hear that The Mayaro Historical Society has pledged itself, to renovations of the historic old Mayaro Post Office, including setting up a restoration fund.
