Cardiff City Hall
City Hall is a civic building in Cathays Park, Cardiff, Wales. Built of Portland stone, it became the fifth building to serve as Cardiff's centre of local government when it opened in October 1906. Its design, by architects Lanchester, Stewart and Rickards, is based on English and French Renaissance styles.

The Marble Hall
The first floor landing of City Hall is decorated with marble statues of famous figures from Welsh history:

Statue of Sir Thomas Picton
On the website the name of the Sculptor of this statue is mis-spelt. The name 'Mewburn'
has a 'w' in it, not a 'u' after the 'Me'.
Thomas Mewburn Crook was my Grandfather, so I would be grateful to see this error rectified. Thank you.
