Building and John Brill Mural Restoration completed

At last it looks as if this masterpiece is saved!


I wish to thank the following for their permission to publish the pictures, and the report on the following page, of their work in restoring the building and the John Brill mural.


Al Burdy Company that has funded this excellent restoration and also the team that have carried out this exacting and high quality work.


The team are...
  Dott. Arch. Khalil Abdel Hadi and Dott. ssa Arch. Marina Cappellino from CISAM Italy and...

  Eng. Mohamed Khalil and Eng. Osama Ghinjiwa from Al Burdy company.


I am informed that they do not yet know if the uncovered mural is by John Brill. It may of course be that it will never be known.
