Notes This collection of architectural designs, drawings, motifs and plans (reproduced in various journals) was possibly a source book for Lethaby, being categorised into such areas as 'Churches', 'Schools' and other more specific areas of architectural interest. (These five sketches may or may not be related.)
Object Notes This drawing seems to be a design for some kind of air conditioning unit or purifier. Shows 1) front elevation 2) side elevation and 3) a plan from above. This is most likely a design for a commercial building or offices of some kind. As with F.145.1, there is avague possibility that this may have been a sketch for the Eagle Insurance Building in Birmingham.
