Jamaica Tower, Carnegie Tower, Wellington Tower and Maxwelltown Tower have dominated the skyline of Dundee for 50 + years, but over the past 20+ they have become increasingly run down, despite a concierge service being introduced.
Despite their beautiful views over the mouth of the River Tay, their dilapidation meant that they were no longer lettable and their degradation accelerated.
And so, today they were blown up...
What a sight. Four explosions, almost simultaneous, a second of calm, and then the cloud covering the surrounding houses, cars and streets with dust.... and a pile of rubble, which will doubtless help towards the supply of foundation for the V & A...and another chapter in Dundee's history.
