If this was 1989, it must be early January. I think it was mid January when the cooling towers were demolished if my memory serves me correctly.

Looks like it was January 15th 1989, Neil. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pYV-l827Efg

Can't have been January when this pic was taken though, the trees are in leaf.

You are quite right.

It must have been 1988 when i took this shot.
Time flies. :-)
