The roof of the #BalfronTower in Poplar, viewed from the top of the side turret that houses the lifts.
There are still four pirate aerials fixed up there, not active but still in place. I've heard @geeneus say in an interview that he used to climb over the edge of this bit, to wedge the transmitter behind the pipes that run down the side of the building. 😅
Being the tallest building for miles around, this was where @rinsestagram broadcast from for many years.
On the opposite turret you can see in the top left of the photo, up a ladder; is a Chubb safe. It would have also contained a pirate radio transmitter at some point, to keep it 'safe' from the #DTI or rival crews.
Getting a heavy safe up a ladder shows some determination! 💪🏼 The tower is now empty, tenants were evicted just after Christmas. It is being refurbished into luxury flats.
Ibland fantiserar jag om livet som jätteliten.
• Här har vi en blommande mossa. Har du problem med mossa i trädgården? Då kan du åtgärda det genom att sprida ut kalk vilket kan köpas i närmsta blomsterbutik. • Den här tkr jag dock är fin och hade sparat.
