Tentest Fibre Board advert, 1931 - illustration of Northcliffe House, Deansgate, Manchester, UK

An illustration showing the recently (1931/2) remodelled Northcliffe House, Manchester home of the Daily Mail, the architect for the works being J W Beaumont. The striking building was demolished in 2002. Tentest was a propitiatory brand of fibreboard insulation. The artist is noted as DM, but I'm uncertain as to the actual name.
