Jaws of Vengeance!

Marie and I have just seen a crane eating a building.

Words alone cannot really do this justice but the old concrete bunker on the roundabout at the end of Westminster Bridge Road is BEING EATEN BY A CRANE.

It has jaws and eyes and water sprouting from it's articulated neck. It looks a little bit like this.

I had to stop and stare and laugh like a 10 year old boy.

I've just seen a crane eat a building.


  1. I went out to look at it too. It was way cool. Hehehehehehehe (Beavis and Butthead-style laugh.)

  2. Isn't it about 30 years overdue? I'm so happy to see it go.

  3. When they took down the postwar buildings in Exeter last year, it was like we had been invaded by mechanical dinosaurs. I got so excited I had to take a photo or two. They're taking down this thing, aren't they?

  4. I saw a crane crossing the road the other day. I love watching caterpillar tracks close up...

    The way they can turn on the spot -SO COOL!!!
