I arrived a few minutes after opening one Sunday morning, and couldn’t believe just how quiet the place was - especially in the summer tourist season.

Vauxhall Bus Station on Flickr.Via Flickr:
Another one of London’s iconic buildings that is under threat of demolition is this futuristic, Arup designed, bus station - which was only built in 2004. The area has seen some significant development in recent years, and the local council plan to build a new high street for the area which will see this impressive structure being removed.

The End of an Icon on Flickr.Via Flickr:
The Battersea Power Station, as seen from Vauxhall Bridge in August 2014. This is the last time you will see it, as about a week after this photo was taken work began to ‘develop’ it into a new residential/commercial place. Somehow the developers have permission to literally demolish the existing LISTED building a build a replica of it for their needs - which in my book kind of defeats the point of having listed buildings at all. I’m sure the new development will ‘look’ impressive, but every Londoner will lose their feeling of awe this iconic building holds whenever it comes into sight.
