Gary,

 

Thanks for the great info. I did some research and found a link that discusses the event you are talking about. The building was actually at Ronan Point and the article (with pictures) can be accessed at http://www.eng.uab.edu/cee/faculty/ndelatte/case_studies_project/Ronan%20Point.htm. It looks like “compromises in workmanship” were also to blame.
