Two wolves, a pile cluster and a gull.
Seem to remember that welding the cluster on to the main leg took about a week to weld. There were 6 welders on the outside and 4 on the inside. Bit hot too. The ones on the top side had thick asbestos mats to crawl on. What would, "Aunty Health and Safety," say today.
I was Welding the lower one. And a bloody lot of sparks falling on the men half underneath. I have no memory of working on the higher one after it was lifted up.
