Excerpt from Building and Ornamental Stones of Australia

HE of this work is to demonstrate that Australia has an unlimited supply of building and ornamental stones, which lend themselves admirably to the purposes of decorative art.

It is hoped that its publication will result in a greater appreciation of our resources, not only on the part of Australia, but of the world in general, while the technical information supplied by Mr. Baker must prove invaluable to all who are interested in town planning.

With the possession of such magnificent building material, and the gradual development of national artistic perception, there is no reason why we should not evolve a style of architectural decoration purely Australian.

I may be pardoned for pointing with pride to the industrial value of the important research work carried out by Mr. Baker and his colleagues at the Sydney Technological Museum, of which the publication of this volume is further evidence.
