  1. Many happy memories for sure

  2. Worked their until 1998, loved the job, would go back in a heart beat

  3. Many happy memories of working there – seems like a lifetime ago now

  4. Great photos, so much history there. It’s a shame to see such an old building go but I guess the old must make way for the new or the area will stagnate. How easy is it to get down there anyway? Despite living very near by I’ve never actually tried any exploring!

  5. I “worked” there till 2008 . Great job, would go back today, for half the money!

  6. Something’s going on with your image viewer script. Photos look good though, but can’t see them full size!

  7. I USED TO WORK AT RHODIA UNTIL 2001 WELL DONE !
