hmmm...this has happened more than once in Brighton. They should be made to rebuild exactly as was lost.

It looks like the best bit of the Co-Op building actually survived... which means the boys will be sent round again tonight to finish the job.

The fat brown envelopes don't change hands until there's nothing but rubble. It's all there in Glasgow's City Plan.

There's some really depressing photographs on this forum - particularly in the 'Lost' threads. But despite the tough competition from across the UK, I think Glasgow gets the prize for the worst self-inflicted vandalism to any British town or city in the post-war era.

I wouldn't dispute that, sadly.

If you visit the Glasgow sub-forum and see us discussing which heritage building will be the next to be burned down in mysterious circumstances that will never be investigated, be assured that we're not engaging in that black humour for which we're world-renowned. For the most part, we're being deadly serious.

Demolition of this fine Art Deco piece in Portsmouth has been completed. Apparantly it couldn't be reused on account of the mahoosive underground NATO command centre it was the entrance for.


The old Staircase

Growing up in Paulsgrove, this was literally 1/4 from the house I grew up in. The Hill looks WRONG without it.
