athlone cooling towers implosion

The cooling towers of the Athlone (coal) Power Station (featured previously) in Athlone, Cape Town stood from the early 1960s until a few minutes before noon today. The towers were seen by some as icons of Cape Town; they were, at the very least, distinctive landmarks along the N2. The demolition was quite a sight to see.
