Hi John
Back in the mid 80's I worked in Euston Centre and the complex on the right looks like I remember it, with the Euston Tower housing Capital Radio just in shot. Just south of us stood the Post Office Tower, so my guess would be that you were possibly enjoying something to eat in the revolving restaurant. As for the year, well the terrorists put a stop to public visits, so my second guess would be early 70's?? Hot or cold??

Happy new year and regards

Nick

Wherever it was, you were certainly higher than ground level John Smile

That could be a clue, of course, John!

As the two first comments hit it pretty much on the nose, I admit it. Post Office Tower, as it then was, in summer 1969, judging from the envelope of negatives I got this from.

What I find most fascinating is that the streets are so empty, during a normal day - even if it was a Sunday, it was at least late morning - and there are rows of empty parking spaces!

It was taken after 1963 (when Mathew Hall Engineers became a stand alone company) but the building is I have no idea.

Great captures, not only loads of parking spaces, but hardly any traffic on those roads.

I was at Picture Editor's meeting and part of the trip was a visit up the tower.
Closed to the public at the time we had a bar to ourselves and the then Chairman arrived as we were leaving and opened the bar again.

The revolving floor was something else as the drinks took effect.

Oh to have streets that empty of traffic (and pollution) again...
