Thomson Houston office block, Building 86, will be demolished
from Tuesday 15 April.2009
These prestigious offices were first opened in 1938, survived
bomb damage and numerous changes of company name, and are now
destined for the crusher.
Converteam's Central Facilities have, for many months, been
recycling items of interest from Building 86 and the latest
successful mission was to remove the British Thomson Houston
stonework from over the entrance for eventual re-use with the
relocated war memorial, preserving the heritage." The end of an era
!! Kind regards, Jim
Thanks to John Hyde for taking and sending in the Photograph.
