Power failure - Dazeley documents Battersea's decline

Looking like the inspiration for the set on Lost Dazeley's images record the sad deline of a London icon. See more images here

And if you're into bricks - 61 million bricks were used to build Battersea Power Station. It was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott & built in 1933. It went out of service in 1983.

The question has to be will the redevelopment retain any of this old character? The Tate breathed new life in to Bankside I somehow think the same won't be true of Battersea's reinvention.
