Easy way to create instant site of interest

First published in Letters

A FEW weeks ago there was a letter about the building that was once the steam printing works and is now the new Salisbury Reds bus office (Postbag, May 1).

I've often wondered about the history of the building, with each of its large windows a different shape on each floor and the raised lettering on each level.

The large windows were apparently to allow the maximum amount of natural light into the print works.

With the building all one colour, the raised lettering doesn't stand out as much as it should.

I think the lettering should be painted red to emphasise the building’s links to the newspaper industry, and perhaps there could be a small oval plaque summarising the building’s history, similar to the blue ones describing famous people.

And there you have it, a bit of red paint, a small plaque and you've got an instant tourist attraction.
