Tomason are vestigial architectural features: the term is Japanese, derived from the surname of an American baseball player who was hired by a Japanese team but sat out the season due to injury. Dan Hill’s City of Sound, quoting Greg Allen: “Tomason are the useless, abandoned leftovers. Stairs to nowhere are a favourite. Bricked up windows are a close second.”
The building was demolished last year, but it still has a driveway.
