I WOULD like to thank Graham Williams of Canton for making public the photo of Cardiff boilermakers (Viewpoints November 2).

One of the boilermakers was my maternal grandfather Bob Moffat.

Peter Fishlock Crystal Avenue, Cardiff IN REPLY to the letter from Graham Williams and the photograph of a group of boilermakers, I believe that Morgan Evans was my late husband's grandfather (1868 to 1932). The family lived in Penhevad Street, Grangetown.

J M Evans Tongwynlais SHOPPING in Canton is a pleasure, largely due to the friendliest shop staff, especially Tesco, so it is with them in mind I write to the Echo.

Could the powers that be in Tesco find somewhere for staff to enjoy their cigarette break? I see them daily standing in the side entrance doorways, often wet and cold. In this age of smoking being frowned on, people who do smoke should have the right to enjoy it, and being banned to a side street is not the way.

Come on Tesco big wigs, build them a cabin and let them enjoy their smokes in a warm, safe place. I bet the boardroom of the Tesco HQ is often full of smoke while bosses count their profits, made by the likes of their hard-working Canton staff.
