BT Tower

What happened to optimism?

From a visit up the GPO/Post Office/Telecom/BT Tower, London, 1964, arch. Ministry of Public Building and Works (Eric Bedford and G.R. Yeats). The tallest building in London from its completion in 1964 until the NatWest Tower in 1980. For me symbol of London, and so of home, and repository of hope.
