Description

Lyon recollected that he “spent a lot of time on rooftops, climbing up wrecked stairwells in half demolished buildings, using fire escapes that hung to the street to enter a building via a window, then, at the top floor, climbing up metal ladders, and pushing inside trapdoors to reach the roof.”
