Empire House

Mount Stuart Square, a designated conservation area since 1980, is home to something like 60 listed buildings. Some of these listed buildings are considered landmark buildings; some are not.

One of the ones which is listed is Empire House, designed by Percy Thomas. It was originally built for Evans & Reid Coal Company, one of the exporters who exported coal out through Cardiff Docks. It was built in 1926.

My choice of wallpaper today is another shot from last year’s summer holiday. The lands above Harlech are criss-crossed by walls like this one, snaking off into the distance, dividing up a landscape that most tourists never get to see.
