Garden office covered in machine makers' plates

Wolverhampton electrician Tony Levy has decorated his garden office shed - furnished with a B&W portable TV, writing desk, worktop and cosy chair - with over 150 machine makers’ plates which he has salvaged from derelict factories, foundries, mills and furnaces from around the West Midlands, according to the Express & Star. You can have a look around it in the video above. As he tells the paper:
"In essence, it’s a history of metal-bashing at its best. I come across them in my job and cannot bear to see them lost forever. Some people think it’s on a par with collecting manhole covers – but we’re all different.”
