Symes Road Destructor/Then And Now

Built in 1933, the Symes Road Destructor was quite an elegant building with Art Deco influences.
The exhaust chimneys were built first.
An impressive structure for burning garbage.
The scale....
Now abandoned and vandalized...

  3. It's a grim street and area.

  4. The area isn't so grim, just that particular block is a bunch of meat processing plants and abattoirs so it smells quite bad and the noise at night is a bit distressing.
