Just two men with a pick and a wheelbarrow

  • Comment

I write with reference to your article on the work at the Royal Albert Hall (AJ 21.3.02 ).

Can it be really true that two men dug the ventilation tunnel by hand? If there is any justice, these men must be named and honoured.

A plaque in their memory should surely be erected at the tunnel entrance. The construction industry needs its heroes.
