Name of CreatorP. Norman Button
DescriptionPhoto taken from high up looking across at the top of a residential building under construction. It has three levels at least already and boards have been placed on the top level, on top of which are many stacks of bricks. There is scaffolding up around it and a scaffolding walkway on the back side of the building can be seen to the right of centre. There is another scaffolding walkway on the left and in the space between these two is a temporary staircase leading up to the roof where there is a small section covered in a lattice like structure. Behind this building, a boom crane has its arm extended to the left and its hook block is lowering something down below the top level of the building in view. There are some more building foundations visible behind this, as well as a couple of large deciduous trees spaced apart. At the back of the residential building, on the right, are some temporary wooden huts/ cabins and even further right is a row of trees with one standing significantly higher than the rest. In the background, there are rows of houses and trees in Guildford town.
