Name of CreatorP. Norman Button
DescriptionView of the Robert Boyle building taken from the other side of a road behind it. Much of the outer structure with pillars and wall sections are up - the far side of the building has only one level so far. There is a stairwell section visible on the side of the building nearest the photographer. This part of the building is in shade. Inside the building, some site workers are visible on the top and second levels, and there are three workers on the top of the building. In the foreground in front of the photographer, some building foundations are visible to the right, as well as a small dumper truck and a wheelbarrow on a road just ouside this section. On the far right of the photo is a large deciduous tree, casting a big shadow on the road beside it. On the left of the Robert Boyle building is a ditch with some more foundations and a couple of funnel tops poking out near the roadside. On the far left of the photo is the corner of Senate House, in the sunshine. There is a tower crane standing tall above the centre of the Robert Boyle building, its arm/ jib extended to the left.
