On one of the corners of Spitalfields market in London, there's a sign that reads:
"This market was finished rebuilding by R. Homer 1893"
Is this a clumsy sentence? Is it grammatically correct?
"R. Homer finished rebuilding this market, 1893"
be more correct?
I'm confused by the 'rebuilding' - is it a noun here? Is there some intransitivity in the verb 'finished'?
