While the literature of concrete contains innumerable data on the subject of concrete floor surfacings, material having to do with the more decorative types is especially noteworthy because of its comparative rarity. A quarter of a century ago when ornamental concrete floors were just beginning to gain a foothold in the United States such a condition might have been attributed to the natural conservatism of technical writers. Today, when concrete floors of one type or another are the rule rather than the exception in all manner of buildings is no valid reason why they should be any longer neglected in print.
