More Bras

De-nuded by re­cent thefts, the Cardrona bra fence is re-pop­u­lat­ing once again, to the joy of its sup­port­ers, and the ire of its de­trac­tors. The much pho­tographed and con­tro­ver­sial tourist at­trac­tion even rates its own page on in­ter­net en­cy­clo­pe­dia Wikipedia, which has faith­fully recorded the bra fence’s ups and downs at the hands of en­thu­si­as­tic donors, not to men­tion sharp scis­sors and crit­ics, in its 14-year his­tory.
