Nine years, to the day, actually. I was trying for ten years to the day, but after concocting what follows, I realised that these actually date from October 8th 2009:
The first one shows a rather strange footbridge that used to go over the site, taking pedestrians from London Bridge Station to Guy’s Hospital, and places beyond. Most of the other photos were taken from on that bridge.
What surprises me now is how chaotic it all looks, especially when I zoomed in on a particular bit of chaos.
What that lumpy cylinder that they are manhandling is, I do not know.
The website to be seen in the final photo seems to be long gone.
