E KG Cleveland Museum ofArt Cleveland,O. Hubbell & Benes S Archts This Monumental Building has a Monumental Roof WHEN you look at this enduring monument to art-its grace, its repose, its beauty, all unite to express one thought eloquently-permanency. It is a valuable building; its contents almost priceless. So it is made of the best materials obtainable. It has a Johns-Manville Asbestos Roof. This doesn't mean that it has an expensive roof, because over a period of several decades, or as far into the future as you care to think, it will need no coating or painting because it is all mineral. And during your life and even those of your children it will still be guarding the art treasures beneath it from weather and fire. Any building can have a Johns-Manville Asbestos Roof. Your building can have the same protection-an all mineral roof (Johns Manville Asbestos and natural asphalt) that's immune from all roof diseases. There is a Johns-Manville Asbestos Roofing for every roofing purpose, and all of them are protected by Johns-Manville Roofing Responsibility -a principle that protects the users through an exclusive system of registration. When you register your roofing it is then our obligation to see borne out every claim made for it, so that you will be completely satisfied with its service. H. W. JOHNS-MANVILLE CO.
