Description:A postcard view of one of the two chimneypieces in the Banquet Hall. The encaustic tiles in the hearth were supplied by Herbert Minton.

This postcard view was published by Raphael Tuck and Sons, Art Publishers to the King and Queen and HRH The Prince of Wales, for M. Z. Waddicar, Alton Towers.
