We were told today that most office buildings are designed with an intended lifespan of 25 years. The Bloomberg building has been designed for a lifespan of 50 years
Futuristic buildings for the not too distant future!:D
Then they'll probably demolish some other old buildings to build a new one and the original site will be something else or the car park!

Time for me to say goodnight now too.
If you do pop in @Tidgy's Dad I hope you have had a lovely Day 1 of your birthday.
I will see you tomorrow @Bee62 - hope it's not too wet and windy for you and all your animals.
Take care, sleep well and Gute Nacht
Nos da to everyone else who may pop in!

Ogh my gosh - so sorry to hear the sad news. You know all your virtual friends are thinking of you at this time. Good you could be there for your dad.

Lyn mentioned storm and rain. The weather comes from her.:eek::D
Ah, well she is in Wales, not England, so don’t make that mistake again :D

Awful weather ??? On your pics it looks not so.:D
It rained all day in London and today is going to be wetter in Kent... fortunately we will be north of London at the outlaws so hopefully it will be drier there

There has been a settlement in London for over 2000 years. In that time the Romans, the Vikings and the French have invaded, demolished and built; there have been many fires, including one that burnt a large part of the city down, and floods; buildings have fallen down or been knocked down due to condition, fashion, industry and ownership; and a huge part of the city was flattened by wartime bombing.

Some things survive. Some have been built and many have been rebuilt. Some of the stuff built after the war was truly awful concrete and has been replaced.

The city constantly changes and evolves. It has always been a strange mix of ancient and modern

Oh Todd. Please accept my condolences. I am so sorry for your loss :(

Your father is at peace now; try to draw comfort from that if you can.

Massive hugs from me to you and your family
