A selection of pics from yesterday - more to be found in my Shard Gallery

Progress shot from Queen Elizabeth Street





TC7 from various angles













North side TC nearly gone




A delivery of glazing units in the Shard Holding Area on St Thomas Street





South side in b/w




Cage ride (he was going up to TC7 as it happens)




Backpack roof






I noticed some finishing work going on on the white columns on Joiner Street - plugging the bolts and joins between the sections and repainting.

I am seeing this tower alot on Wimbledon broadcasts. When there is a pauze or there aren't any games played they sometimes zoom in on downtown, mostly Saint Mary Axe, Wembley and the Eye but you can also see this building.

Probably will be the same in a year from now with the Olympic games, but than completed.

Now, I'm aware that "those red things" are the blind boxes, but I noticed in your last picture there cyber that they had disappeared. Will the blinds themselves cover the blind boxes? I'm going to go ahead and assume yes, but I'd love some clarification.

Not quite sure what you mean, Matt. They're visible in the panels on the right of the picture, and out of shot in the wing on the left.
