I met up with Darryl from 853 at the Boord St foot bridge and waited with bated breath. Unfortunately it wasn’t the large silos that came down, but instead the smaller, blue silo in the middle of the picture above.

The actual moment of demolition caught me off guard although I did fumble my way into taking a couple of pictures of it coming down…
