Object Detail

The Grove crane lifts off the turret from the Hamilton Baptist church in London Street. It was being demolished as a new church complex opened in Charlemont Street. The crane can be seen at the left of the church with an open backed Miami Furniture and Bedding Shoppe truck parked near it. Hand written signs casually daubed on the walls and columns invited people to buy the demolition materials or collect free firewood. On the right is a Davies Construction rubbish skip in front of the trees.
