Notes NOTES: The original Winter Gardens was designed by Stanley C. Ramsey in collaboration with the then Borough Engineer, Mr Borg. The building was enlarged in 1936 to designs solely by Ramsey, by the addition of the sun lounge, new kitchens, cloakrooms, a covered way from the Fort Road and this, the new bar. The greater part of the building was destroyed by enemy bombing in 1940 and was reconstructed to designs by Ramsey, Murray and White in 1947.
