Gulliver’s Disappearance, Scotland (Zoom Out) When zoomed out, it still shows.

Designed 1976 by Jimmy Boyle while in prison and constructed by unemployed adults and youth, this Gulliver’s sculpture was the  the longest concrete sculpture in Europe. It has been neglected and threatened with demolition — and it finally looks demolished.

It is quite sad when unusual (and yes, not so mysterious in this case) structures disappear. I just noticed that if you look at the Google map at zoom level 17 and under, it still shows Gulliver’s shape, but if you zoom in, you’ll see all sorts of bulldozers, construction materials, sand, barrels — but no Gulliver. I am including the screenshots, as the maps will lose even the low resolution Gulliver pretty soon. There is a Flikr page with more info.
