From Professor D. H. Perkins

Sir: I was interested to read your article today ("Crystal Palace may rise from the ashes", 18 October) on the proposed recreation of the Crystal Palace 1851 exhibition hall. I would merely point out that a replica of the building already exists in the middle of Dallas. It is used for exhibitions and the ground-floor walls have numerous photographs of the original building in the course of its construction in Hyde Park.

Yours faithfully,

D. H. Perkins
