Last Surviving Remnant of the Swiss Centre

I became extremely saddened to see property developers flatten the Swiss Centre, it was a big focal point on a corner of Leicester Square. I remember first seeing it as a child, it had a fascinating light contraption that would advertise, provide weather forecasts and give brief news summaries; this was replaced by an extremely tacky but enchanting clock with literally loads of bells and whistles, it used to attract numerous people and tourists. The building itself was a fascinating combination of curves and cubes. Sad to see it go - may the buggers who did this get credit crunched big time!
