chimneys? wikipedia says 2 were removed in the 60s when they converted it from coal-fired to oil-fired.

I think Londonese was talking about the new buildings though - no, not symettrical at all, one is the other side of the creek. i think from some angles you'll get chimney - tower - chimney - tower, though.
