Description

A fascinating photograph that shows the rendering and tiles added to the top of the exposed wall to provide short term protection prior to the anticipated lengthly and costly restoration, after the war is over. This work was undertaken by Mowbray Green. The fully restored Assembly Rooms did not reopen until 1963.
