SIR - After reading Wednesday's article on the changes in Bradford; it is something everyone who you meet around Bradford talks about.

We had a lovely city in the 1950s and 1960s and for part of the 1970s.

I can't remember exactly when it began to change.

But we all think places like Sunwin House could have been saved and kept as a departmental store. It was a wonderful shop.

Also whoever was in charge of planning at that time could have concentrated on Darley Street and kept the old Kirkgate markets, as Leeds has done, instead of making it a replica of every other city with the Arndale Centre.

I know it's too late now.

Today I think City Park is a lovely attraction, as are the theatres.

Lots of us Bradfordians feel very sad about the wrong sort of changes made to our city. Its like a patchwork of mistakes.

A great shame.
