The firm Elemeta Windows were the main contractors for Tolmer Square, a large glass-encased building on Euston Road in London completed in 1981. In commemoration the firm commissioned Neiland to make a screenprint in a special edition of five to be given to the architect and others closely associated with the building, and including one for presentation to a national collection. Neiland had frequently made paintings and prints of buildings, and there are other prints of the same date featuring highly reflective glass facades.
