Notes R. Norman Shaw was the architect of the Albert Hall Mansions in South Kensington. Lethaby worked in Shaw's offices as his Chief Clerk between 1879-1890; Shaw had expressed admiration for Lethaby's drawings before employing him. This particular piece was almost certainly made during Lethaby's first two years at Shaw's company.
Object Notes Drawing by Lethaby of a building designed by Shaw, showing a very detailed sketch view of the Albert Hall Mansions. Bottom left, "WR Lethaby Delt." (ie drawing by WR Lethaby).
