TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Secretary, H M Office of Works
Date1 February 1908
DescriptionHarrison's attention has been called by an engineer of the H M Office of Works to the defective condition of the boiler which serves for heating this building and that it will not stand through another winter. Harrison is directed to ask that H M Commissioners give instructions for a new boiler to be fitted. Harrison has also been directed to call to attention the unsatisfactory construction of the radiators. They are so arranged as to make it impossible to clean them properly, and do not give the maximum effect for their surface. The air supplied to most of the rooms in the building is rendered to a great extent dust-laden by the radiators.
