Top of the Tower

BT Tower viewIt’s the 50th anniversary of the BT (formerly Post Office) Tower this year, so it was great to go up and see the view, at a charity event near the end of October. The towers of the City stood out, and not much industrial to be seen anywhere, although the Park Royal industrial estate – once the home of Guinness – was pointed out in the distance. And yes, the old restaurant at the top of the tower does still revolve, albeit a tad jerkily to begin with! Latest news on the Vic & Ed Industrial Architecture book is that I should have the proofs by mid-December, so looking good for spring 2016 publication.
