I was on my way to the Crescent Theatre when I noticed a large group of people congregating just off of Five Ways Island. As I now know from looking at the Birmingham Flickr group a demolition was taking place. I hastily got out my camera and snapped a few shots of the demolition! It was a amazing, if slightly disturbing sight. Within about two seconds a whole building went from being there to not being there

Stephen Cooper has some better photos of the whole event.
