TC 1958
This magnificent drawing of Television Centre comes from "The Architect & Building News" of July 23rd 1958. The original is some 23" x 18" and was salvaged by Neil Pittaway. I have now removed the majority of scribbles! There are now two 'pop-up' closeups - one of the inner courtyard which features VT in the basement, the other of the Central Wedge which shows TK, CAR and Presentation. Just click on the appropriate area. Please be patient as these are big! The scan of the original is some 9000 x 7000 pixels, so the detail is there.
TC model
The drawing gives me an excuse to reproduce this photograph of a model of Television Centre, made, I would assume, around the same time. Both the drawing and the model show Stages IV and V (The Spur) which were not completed for many years.
