The bridge at Vaisigano

Dear Editor,

When the new bridge is built over the Vaisigano River, I hope you retain it’s name, ‘Coronation Bridge’, named during the Samoa celebrations in honour of the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. 

My father filmed it all in 1953; the celebrations at Malifa and along Beach Road culminating with the cutting of the ribbon at the opening of the ‘Coronation Bridge,’ wonderful!
