. . . I didn’t say anything about what the present top storey replaced. For the purpose of this point, it’s not really relevant what the present top storey replaced; it may not have replaced anything, since the buildings with their early panelling were quite possibly of smaller three-storey scale to begin with.

But Devin, this is the central point. For the existing roof structure not to be original [or a renewal of the original in some cases] as I believe, you have to explain what you think the original structure was.

That way, we can stand up the two ideas and interrogate them . . . until yours crumples on the floor in a heap 🙂

. . . in a heap 🙂

Yeh, because it didn’t happen.
