NOTES: The Guildhall was built in 1724 to designs said to be by Thomas White. The Assembly Room, on the top floor, was remodelled by George Byfield in 1791. This apparently unexecuted design for alterations was probably produced between 1845 (when the lithographers' name Day & Son came into use) and 1859 (when Henry Rowe senior died). In the 1870s Henry Rowe junior, then the city architect, worked with Sir George Gilbert Scott on alterations to the Assembly Rooms.
