“The materials used in the building under notice consist of red brick from the works of J.C. Edwards, Ruabon, North Wales, from whence also came the terra-cotta used in panels, strings, &c., &c. The dressings are of limestone, from the quarries of Mr. Walter Doolin, at Ballinasloe. The ceiling of shop floor is richly panelled in pitch pine and American walnut.”
