Now this is cool. My previous Westgate House pictures came to the notice of one of the guys actually working on the demolition job, and he’s very kindly sent me some pictures taken from the inside.
Quite apart from seeing the inside of the remains of the building, you can see some unusual views of the surrounding buildings, and one of the nifty “little” machines that have been chomping away at the structure. That beastie is tethered to an electrical cable, and manages a pressure of 50 tonnes at the tip of its teeth.
Thanks for the pics, Ken!
