Demolition of the old office

August 21, 2007

Another shoddy cameraphone snap of the old building. This is from the north side of Fenchurch St, looking south east.

    Looks a similar construction to the building being demolished next to Lloyds where it’s demolished from the bottom up. I took some photos of the no.20 a couple of weeks ago before all the glass had gone round the lower floors. Have to take some more of it’s continuing destruction.
