  • Inside Battersea Power Station

    Anyone want to see inside Battersea Power Station, which is being redeveloped? Not sure how long these pics will stay up so be quick:

    Those outside the UK may recognize it from the front cover of Animals by Pink Floyd.
    'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

    Archie Mercer to Mike (Burroughsania letters page, 1957)

    Fascinating - what a building. It would be nice if part of it could be preserved intact. I recognise the control room in picture 6 from the cover of 'Quark, Strangeness and Charm'. That follows, I guess: another piece of work by Hipgnosis.

      I think industrial ruins should be preserved in all their glorious decay. Pity to muck it up.

        The "Mess room" photo seems the most poignant. You can easily imagine the conversation as the workers left it after their last tea-break...

        Cheers,
