Shrinking Ballarat silos

I have been fascinated lately with the wrecking of the Ballarat silos........  
over the past week or so the smaller of the two has been slowly.....
 Shrinking
 shrinking
 shrinking
 shrinking
 shrinking
 shrinking
 shrinking
 and today just a pile of concrete.......
cant wait to see the big one and all the swinging of the wrecking ball......
 A customer that came to my work did say that the silos were built in 1966....... not that old really....
