NOTES: In this early sketch for the new Palace of Westminster Barry is working on the facade of New Palace Yard. The drawing incorporates the medieval front of Westminster Hall, while a tower second from the left marks the site of the future Big Ben. The following year, 1836, Barry won the design competition.
