San Antonio Face-Lift
Part Eight: Easter



 
Commentary

In our eighth weekly photographic series on the face-lift of San Antonio that took place ten-years-ago, today we are showing pictures taken during Easter of the town being cleaned up and getting prepared in time for the rapidly approaching hectic summer holiday season, which normally starts here at the beginning of May.

Therefore, the building construction work had to be temporary suspended and stopped until the end of that summer tourism season and it was then resumed at the start of the following winter months after the holidaymakers had left the island and gone home until the following summer.

Next week we will continue with picture of the gruelling work that then began at the end of the 1992 summer season as the job started to reclaim the necessary twenty-five metres from the sea to make way for the new promenade of San Antonio.
