I was coming South on Waterloo Bridge
tonight and saw a gladdening sight, a Crane beside the Royal Festival Hall
garlanded with bulbs. Sadly the tradition of Construction Cranes decorated with lights and a festive tree at the outmost point seems to have almost disappeared.
Is the demise of crane decorating something to do with Health & Safety or are workmen into a more minimal look for the worksite these days?
