In addition to Fortune and the Boy at the Well and Joy and Sorrow Mahoney contributed a ceiling decoration, The Four Winds of Hilly
Fields, on the underside of the gallery. The Brockley mural cycle stands out as one of the most important decorative schemes of the
twentieth century in Britain, and the Hall was listed by the Department of National Heritage in April 1992 ‘solely because of the high
quality and rarity of the mural paintings.’ [Quoted Gill Clarke, Evelyn Dunbar, War and Country, p. 24]
