Newcastle City Library: 30 April

Update: The full set of pictures can now be seen in this album:

    Just got the timing right for once. All my previous visits have been when they were picking up the rubble, which is moderately interesting, but nowhere near as much fun as watching some quality destruction[1]. :bouncy:

    It is a shame that a building that seemed to be doing its job nicely is being torn down, but the new one looks like it will be very pretty :smile:
