Well that shot was from the official website and it was taken by a webcam that gets updated every ten minutes, so I can't actually do anything about the date stamp on it.

But, just for you, I did a bit of editing and I managed to cover up the date stamp on that night pic, but don't expect it on every pic that is posted here

Yer, I agree with ya there!

Just another updated pic of construction progress:



Have you noticed that every pic taken of this skyscraper in this thread has been in lovely sunny weather (except the photo at night obviously). It's nice to show that England has plenty of sunny days! In fact, it's having too many at the moment, as some places in the South of England have hosepipe bans becasue of the lack of rain! Who woulda thought it?

This is a gorgeous building. I can barely wait to see what it will look like when completed.

Not yet [email protected] As you can see by the recent daytime pics, the core is still encased by the box.

BTW Along with the Swiss Re scraper, 51 Lime Street will be the 2nd Foster & Partners' scraper in the area.
