A trip down memory lane…

Health and safety folks should look away now.

It is quite some time since DemolitionNews pad a visit to Nostalgia Corner. But this video is just too good and too evocative to leave festering on YouTube.

What you’re about to watch is some 1960s-style demolition taking place in New York.

It is easy to look back at this with head-shaking disbelief. Sure, there is no site hoarding. The machine operator has no protection whatsoever. And the dust is a bit of an issue. But this is where the industry comes from. Without the work of these industry pioneers, we wouldn’t be where we are today.
