Notes This collection of architectural designs, drawings, motifs and plans (reproduced in various journals) possibly formed 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 Rough sketch - see also F.145.5. A design (or perhaps a copy) of decorative motif; perhaps intended to be made in wood or cast iron or even as an inlay. In this drawing (larger than F.145.5, the companion piece) Lethaby has misdrawn the centre of the motif. In F.145.5 he has carefully redrawn this central motif, albeit on a smaller scale.
