REPLACEMENTS: Balustrades were replaced in 1958

I am responding to the letter from George Thompson (News Guardian, August 6).

In the 1950s I worked for his father, Charlie Thompson.

I was one of the workmen who removed all the balustrades and replaced them with the ones there today. This would be about 1958, as he said.

We also worked on the lower prom replacing the wooded lintels with concrete ones.
