SOURCE: Builder, vol. 1, 1843 Sept. 23, p. 398 NOTES: Hansom proposed this memorial building following the death in 1843 of the Prince Augustus Frederick, Duke of Sussex. He described it as "a Sussex Memorial, a Sussex Library (for here I would have his books preserved), a Freemasons' Hall, a Hall of Literature and Science, and, finally, a living type of the arts of structure and design as understood and practised among us up to and at this period."
