The Old Library, Cardiff
The entrance to the building featured a corridor lined with ornamental wall tiles, designed to depict the four seasons and night and morning. These tiles were impressed with coloured clay to give the impression of a mosaic. The Old Library still exists, and is used as a museum and tourist information centre, and is the head office of the British Boxing Board of Control, the governing body of professional boxing in the United Kingdom.
