Sta­tion would be the ideal home for mu­ral

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Your -

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?
