Letter: Sentimental view.

Byline: S Power

WITH regard to Mr Korsham's cloyingly sentimental view of the Liverpool skyline and its heritage in general (Letters, February 8).

Could he please explain when it was that someone declared: "That's it-job done."?

Some dates and names would help.

The truth is no-one ever intended the skyline to stay the same, not even his beloved Victorians and Edwardians.

It is just a rose-tinted figment of his imagination.

When they built the Liver Building, the skyline changed forever, but no doubt some Edwardian version of Mr Korsham would have been ranting on about the mistakes of the past and how it spoiled the view of the Tower Building or destroyed the historic George's Dock.

It just shows there really is nothing new under the sun.

S Power, Liverpool 17
