Description :

An X-ray drawing, presumably for a survey; The drawing seems to show an abandoned entrance to the Bayswater Estate underneath Hyde Park Plant. This material could serve as a key to understanding the early “Digging Era” during which the concentration of PM2.5(Fine Particulate Matter) reached its peak level.A concrete substructure was presumably integrated into an existing Victorian structure. It is assumed that some kind of waste disposal system was placed before the entrance hall. The tunnel from the hall leads to the Elizabeth Tunnel. The drawing shows a concrete core with a broken lift inside it, which was probably damaged during the “The Great Disaster” of 2120.
