From Mr Kenneth Nightingale

Sir: Surely it would be possible to recreate the pre-war architecture in the immediate locality of St Paul's. After all, if it was possible for the post-war governments of Poland and the then Soviet Union to rebuild parts of Warsaw and the then Leningrad to their pre-war splendour, what is there to hinder this proposal other than commercial considerations?

In great cites the world over, cathedrals dominate their surrounds. This is as it was in London. Let's turn the clock back!

Yours sincerely,

Kenneth Nightingale
