It seems that every time I walk down Smith Street, I notice yet another automatic teller machine that has been installed on Smith Street. Reader J. alerted me to yet another one that was "thrown in" on the corner of Smith and Union Street. And what an eyesore it is.
It's bad enough that the installation looks less than professional. Even worse, a niche was cut out of the old brick wall in order to make it fit.
The Smith Union Market building is one of my favorites on Smith Street. Yes, there are already billboards attached the side wall, but those can easily be removed in the future. The ATM (and the hole in the wall) is way more offensive.
