Entry for April 10, 2008 – City Gent’s Playhouse

Posted by HelenEdith on April 10, 2008

Months ago, on a visit to Leadenhall Street, I saw a demolition site where a building is being dismantled from the ground up. In fact, I posted about it on my blog at the time, complete with a picture out of my DSLR.

The demolition has progressed by a storey or two since I last saw it, and the top of the building is now wrapped in plastic, but it seems that this upside down demolition is proceeding very slowly.

The actual reason for the manner of the demolition is that the building was built with all the floors hanging from structures at roof level. There are a half a dozen such buildings in London, and at least one other is also being demolished. They must have reached a “certain age”!

This is quite a successful camera phone picture, but I have to put my hand up and say that I did edit it in PhotoShop a little bit. 🙂
