Melbourne's Newspaper House mosaic was designed by Napier Waller in 1932. Waller was the leading neo-classical mural painter of the period. The mosaic was commissioned as part of a new facade for the original 1884 building. The theme of the mosaic was suggested by Mr. Theodore Fink, a director of the company, with the text, "I'll put a girdle round about the earth". The mural is read from left to right and celebrates technological advances in the progress of mankind.
