The reason I’m showing so many ancient photos here just now is because the weather in London is so very dreary, and I’m not going out much. Instead, I am doing lots of tidying up and chucking out, provoked by those sofas. And, I’m back to doing more at Samizdata than of late.
Here’s another relic from another era. This is Southwark Towers, photoed by me on May 31st 2006:
Relic because this really quite Big Thing was demolished in 2008, to make way for London’s ultimate Big Thing, The Shard.
At the time I took this photo, I had no idea that what I was photoing was about to disappear.
If in doubt, photo the photo.
