Station would be the ideal home for mural
WITH regard to the article on May 17 concerning the search for a new home for the mural at Bridge House.
Can I suggest it is incorporated in the new development of the Great Northern Hotel/railway station.
It should be sited in a prominent position so that visitors to Peterborough can be reminded of our great engineering heritage and hopefully be impressed by the craftsmanship which made this mural 56 years ago.
If this is not a feasible proposal then a site on the approach to the station such as next to the railway bridge over the Nene could be found so it is displayed in a prominent position and catches people’s eye as they arrive in our city by train.
It should not be stored indefinitely while the council consider the suitable site, which on past form of such projects could take years (war memorial as an example).

REGARDING the issue of what to do with the mural which has just been removed from the demolished council building at Town Bridge.
Wouldn’t it be ideal for the revamped station entrance. At least its relevant, local and better than anything else around.
WHAT about the old Woolworths building for putting the mural on?
