I was in the right place at the right time today. Here is footage of the chimney tower coming down at John McCrae School, Water Street.

  1. Hey Leanne,

    Great footage, one for our neighbourhood archives! Julian and I were walking around there today, what time did it happen?

  2. Hi Mark – it came down at exactly 3:10pm, Wednesday, August 6, 2008. I was expecting a thunderous noise with a mushroom cloud, but it wasn’t as dramatic as I had hoped.
