Comment on Hoare & Co. v. McAlpine & Sons, 32 Yale Law Journal 498 (1923)
The law of England is not friendly to skyscrapers. Their erection may even involve a nuisance and bring their constructor within the rule of Rylands v. Fletcher. In Hoare & Co. v. McAlpine & Sons (1922, Ch.) 39 T. L. R. 97, the defendant was engaged in excavating for new buildings expected to attain the immense height of 120 feet, "the highest buildings in the City except St. Paul's."
