Sir: In sharp contrast to the somewhat excessive exposure given to Rachel Whiteread's open mould concrete casting of a terrace house last week, your picture today (Section II, 9 November) illustrating the article by Steve Boggan about 28 Roe Street, Belfast, reveals something infinitely more eloquent and accessible as a beacon of our time.

It has the added dignity that it will not suffice for Turner Prize publicity.

Yours faithfully,
