    I have researched my own family tree, all but one branch were farm labourers from pre ww2 going all the way back to the 1700s. Explains a lot!

    Yeah me too, farm labourers, miners and Irish tinkers, maybe that explains something

    My line goes back to Soldiers, Boat builders, mill workers and a Sailor. I've only gone back to the beginning of the 1800s. Isn't it interesting when you research your family history.

    Excellent demo shots HD! Love the way bits of concrete cling to the metal reinforcing bars it makes it look really skeletal

    The End. The final pictures of Hallam Tower. They have now cleared it back to the concrete base. They will now build a new block on this base that is not totally dissimilar from the one they just knocked down, but with flats with higher ceilings rather than the lower ceiling hotel rooms there previously. Hope you enjoyed this demo-journey.
