City Views #265: Inner City Demolition 18

A panorama from Mülheim’s Viktoriaplatz from January 16th, 2008 – a week after the almost-accident six days before. Most of the remaining building had been removed, but at that point the demolition work had been halted again because the adjacent house had really been damaged – you can see a tarp over the roof. That was bad news for the city government, because the house belongs to a lawyer, but even he was in for a big surprise which I’ll tell in the next photo posts.

City Views #264: Inner City Demolition 17

One last shot from the precarious situation during the demolition work in Mülheim’s Viktoriaplatz in the early evening of January 10th, 2008. From this perspective, you can see how huge the chunk of wall was that the excavator had gripped – if this had fallen on the roof of the next-door house, there would have been huge damage. And later, there was actual damage, as the last couple of photos in this series will show.

It’s hard to recreate the colour of this Zinnia in a photo, but I think this is pretty close.
