It will be said that Mr Wright made these tiles with his own hands, for buildings he didn't let any apprentice draw or even view, and drove himself personally to the recipient buildings with a gold-plate caulking gun . . .

Come on, the mob wants the salacious... the tiles represent Wright's calling card to the client's wives he wanted to, or did,....well, you know ;)

So -- Wright misquoted Tennyson, in 1932 ? Interesting. https://tinyurl.com/zm3vkoy I do like Tennyson's reading better than Wright's . . .

While we await further revelations, can someone identify the music employed in the video linked in the first post on this page ?

I recognize but cannot name this stirring theme . . .

Do you mean this, by Russian composer Glazunov? One can hear that he was one of the composers John Williams was listening to when he composed the Star Wars theme.

Williams borrowed from so many Russians. Putin now wants the royalties ;-)
