Inside of Oxo Tower

Thanks for sharing that, TAK. The OXO Tower will always have a special place in my affections. Up to the age of ten I lived in an old tenement in Walworth. It was in Danso Road, just at the junction of manor Place and Braganza Street. For the first four years we lived on the ground floor, then moved to the top. When I looked out of the window at night and looked to my left, I could see the red 'OXO' sign. I found it fascinating and would sit there for ages, just staring at it. The old tenements are long gone now, but even if they were still standing I don't suppose there would be an uninterupted view now.

Yes, thanks for that TAK. I love the way the Oxo company did a two fingered architectural response to the planning committee - genius!
