City Views #262: Inner City Demolition 15

Now we come to the exciting bit of the demolition on Mülheim’s Viktoriaplatz. The next few photos were taken on the early evening of January 10th, 2008 when the work had to be halted – a big chunk of wall threatened to fall onto the adjacent house and was barely stopped by the clamp of the excavator! You can still see the big machine holding the chunk here – the scaffolding was already in danger of collapsing and there was actually some damage to the other house. But that’s not half of the trouble that started on this day – to be continued in the next photo :-).
