SOMETHING OLD SOMETHING NEW
by louis walsh
This new seating and tables have just been installed in the common room in Cambridge Court. They are not for the use of tenants or inmates as I like to think of them but rather for the hundreds of people who use Cambridge Court as their own private community center while tenants/inmates are confined to their one room flats. They can sit at these tables and have a cup of tea , served from the kitchen which is also forbidden territory to tenants/ inmates. A tenant died in Cambridge Court a few days ago and I can assure you that he never sat in this common room having a nice quiet cup of tea….I have seen a lot of people die in this place but I’ve never seen one enjoying a cup of tea in this ‘common’ room……………..Cambridge Court is a living monument to death and isolation.
