LIKE it or not, concrete is with us. It is with us to stay and grows faster in its hold day by day. These facts being realised our course is obvious. It is for us to change those aspects of concrete which we do not like; and this we can do only by familiarising ourselves with not only the existing products but also with the processes of its manufacture and the machinery used therein. By this means only shall we place ourselves in a position to improve and enhance the possibilities of concrete. To recognise the full justice of this point of view it is necessary to go back in mind only a very few years and to recall the horrible monstrosities which resulted from the undisciplined introduction of cast iron mantle registers. These, at first, until taken under the wing of certain architectural designers were mongrels until refinement was induced into their outward expressions. H. Bryant Newbold
