DateJuly 1968
Name of CreatorP. Norman Button
DescriptionPhoto taken from high up looking across at the top of a Battersea Court residential building under construction. It has several levels already and a topless bricklayer with a bald patch is working to extend the nearest wall upwards. There are boards across some of the top layer with piles of construction materials dotted around these (like wooden planks, bricks, small metal fence type structures and a few window frames). The room divisions inside are visible in the sections with no floorboards down. There are two more men working on the top of the far side of the building. Behind this building, the lecture theatre building and another are visible - two men are working on the roof of a lower building in the gap between these. There is a wheelbarrow on the roof of the lecture theatre building. Behind this again, the tops of some of the academic buildings are visible and on the roof of one of these there is another man working. In the background, there are rows of houses and trees in Guildford town. In the right hand foreground is the mast of a tower crane.
