Destruction of our history

Have your say

AFTER reading in the Examiner today (November, 12) I am disappointed to see the old prison is being demolished.

Why is an historic building being destroyed? It would have made a wonderful tourist attraction, I have gone to other countries and I have been very interested in visiting old jails, learning about their law and order in days gone by.

P.S. People who travel don’t always want to see modern buildings, they want to see how people used to live in days gone by. It is a crime in itself to destroy that historic building.
