You would think a simple Google search would reveal the number of active tower cranes there are in London today, but that is not the case. As such, I will use a less scientific phrase to describe the number: umpteen. As in a bloody lot. There was over 200 over a decade ago and with the Brexit vote the prevailing wisdom was that London would hit the skids. From my vantage point, that just does not seem to be the case. I didn't see ALL of London, but from Heathrow Airport in the west to the Tower Bridge in the east, I saw over 100 tower cranes (basically, I gave up counting out of exhaustion and the inability to keep up). Below are are few notable sites I observed over four days in December.
This page is dedicated to the stuff I love and, for no defensible reason, want to share with the world. Enjoy!
