Bilby Towers

The assembling of early triangulation towers relied on materials to hand, the terrain and the hardiness of the men involved. Jasper Bilby developed a pre-fab/mechano kit for effective construction-deconstruction. Three men, Leg Men would be resonsible for each corner of the tower, each level or horizontal stay would be within reach of the stay below so that building was a matter of level at a time with no additional scaffold to support. Everything was specific to it’s purpose, tools with multiple uses, a-boards for sitting and standing and could fit into many niche’ of the tower, and custom joints. A tower inside a tower.

Purpose built truck beds.

Not to scale – models of cocktail and BBQ stick sorts, homage to Bilby.

Quality is questionable, any available light.
