  1. More history lost forever :( I hope they at least kept all the industrial and historical relics, for some sort of museum in Northfleet.

  2. Oh wow! that is unusual for them to topple towers! Usually they implode don't they? Great photos!

  3. Brilliant! I love seeing building that fall like this and don't fall into themselves.
