Tower

Last year on a trip to Plymouth (England!) I spotted this tower ... it just struck me as too big!

The view must be grand from up there.
*g* - Hadn't thought of it from that point of view!
Erm, yes, just a little out of scale with the rest of the building! It makes my head sort of want to leeeeeean to the right....
I couldn't take a side view, but the main building is fairly square, so whichever way you look they got a bit carried away with the height.
It does seem proportionately off-balance, doesn't it?

The more I looked at it the worse it appeared!
It does look rather out of proportion!
It just seems very wrong!
It looks almost like an afterthought. Definitely out of proportion to the rest of the building. I wonder if it was damaged during the 2nd WW, and repairs were made that were not quite in keeping.
So much of Plymouth was destroyed ... although at the Barbican there are Elizabethan houses that were un-touched.

This building is in the centre of where much of the re-build is.
That looks indeed - odd. I wonder about the reason why the two towers are so different.
LOL - I hadn't even noticed that about the building!
