|Jan 1906 Christmas in Swindon|
LETTER TO THE EDITOR.
While on a visit to Swindon during the festive season of Christmas I was very much struck by the dismal appearance of the canal.It at once seemed to me a great drawback to the general appearance and welfare of a growing town like Swindon.
During the short time I spent in Swindon I came in contact with many people, and concluded that the description " up to date" might be applied to the town generally.Surely something might be done with the canal.Not a very alarming outlay would be required to dredge it well and thus provide boating accommodation, instead of the useless and unsightly form it now presents.
It would be a great acquisition to the town, and also a great incentive for people to visiting Swindon in the pleasant time of the year, when boating becomes to many a source of greatest enjoyment.
