Some suggested improvements
Isle of Wight Observer August 31, 1895
To the Editor of the Isle of Wight Observer
Dear Sir, – I alighted on a facsimile of an old view of Ryde, the other day, in the Lady’s Pictorial of August 17th, and need hardly say, (being a Rydeite), how admirable the suggestion is to open out Union Street at the bottom. Now or never – preferably now; but a short cement walk with decent railings – something like those at Sandown, would be more to the purpose than “a battery” as suggested by your correspondent. You supported my suggestion, Mr Editor, of a Pavilion, some years ago, and we’ve got it.
