THE DOME - I TS USES AND * ' [CONSTRUCTION . ? MANY RECENT MODIFICATIONS. The interest of the world, has,- during the past few ? months, been focussed on St. Paul's Cathedral, Lon don, for it has just beeii reopened fbr worship by His Majesty the King after a period' of intensive . restoration lasting nearly five, years.

BRONZE LETTERING [Newspaper Article] — Construction and Real Estate Journal — 22 October 1930
BRONZE LETTERING ? Although as far as the large majority of people are concerned a letter does its duty right nobly,, as long as it is clear and large enough, to display its necessarv - legend, to architects, decorators, and a few. others who 'love the letter for its own sake,' the design of the actual character is also of great im portance. ? / ; ?' The -Romans excelled in this department of architecture as in many others,, and some* -o;f-'- the most beautiful^ designed and executed lettering known is to -be found on the triumphal arch of Septimius Severus in Rome. Again in the 'Renaissance some very beau tiful lettering was produced; both of these styles are adopted to a large extent to-day. Messrs.
