The BT Tower at Dusk

Here's the BT Tower again at dusk with the sun just catching some of the microwave transmitters. I think it is interesting that all low rise European cities have to have some telecoms structure like this. The effort that goes into the tower says something about civic pride or, at least, the regard in which the telecom firm (usually publicly owned) holds the local people. Clearly BT (or whatever they were then called) made a bit of an effort here in London back in the swinging sixties but take a look at some of these structures in other cities - Birmingham for example.
