The hosting costs of websites on this system have historically been covered by advertising. However changes in the way people use the internet, including ad-blocking mean that the revenues no longer cover the expenses. For this reason we will be closing this website within the next two months unless we can find a different model. If any users of the site would be interested in the possibility of taking this incredible archive or pictures and comments over including paying for hosting, please get in touch.

The Third World "solution" when it comes to building unsafe high rise buildings with inadequate fire prevention and protection measures is to buy giant aerials like this five axle example.

Although they are very expensive, they do of course cost much less than insisting on having big structures built to modern safety standards.

Perhaps - in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower disaster - some UK fire brigades with dangerous high rises should start getting realistic and add these to their fleets too.

It is obviously a half measure, but better than ignoring the problem altogether. And these behemoths can be supplied much more quickly than the time it takes to rehabilitate a dangerous high rise building!
