Continuing from last week’s nostalgic post (and the current trend for old and new images) we have a lovely series of pictures for you.
Whilst on site, Cementation (the company responsible for the piling today and in the 1950s) kindly provided us with a series of photos of work on the site during the construction of Bucklersbury House. One of our team, Mark Ingram, had the brilliant idea of trying to recreate the views on the modern site, and so set off with our photographer to capture the shots… some harder than others due to the large holes in the ground!
Combining these images has produced some great comparison of work on site then and today. We think you will agree, the equipment has definitely changed – however it appears the wet muddy conditions have not!
