Concrete—being given a hard time

Just scanned this Louis Hellman cartoon to show at the Conservation of Historic Concrete course (see — its in September, at West Dean in Sussex, and  there are still some spaces left if you want to come).

It’s from All Hellman Breaks Loose: Architecture Exposed, a brilliant compilation which annoyingly doesn’t give the exact date- just says “the majority of these cartoons first appeared in the Architects Journal between 1975 and 1980.   So it’s not exactly supportive of what I’m trying to argue—but I still think its funny!
