NOTES: This print seems to promote an unbuilt project. The architect John Newton of Salisbury Street, Strand, London, designed both Herne Bay Station (Kent Coast Railway) and Broadstairs Station (London Chatham & Dover Railway), both opened in 1865.
NOTES: The church seen here is the parish church of St Leonard's, designed by James Burton (1834). It was replaced in 1961 by a church designed by Giles and Adrian Gilbert Scott following the destruction of the original building in 1944. The print was probably made around 1835 or 1836 following Princess Victoria's stay with her mother in 1834-1835. The house they stayed in, 57 Marina (the smaller building with four pairs of columns at first floor level), was renamed Victoria House after they left and is now known as Crown House. For a coloured version of this print see RIBA31490.
NOTES: The bridge was designed with the aid of Sir George Humphreys and Topham Forrest, architect to the London County Council. Humphreys dealt with the constructional engineering but Blomfield was called in to deal with the elevations. He first designed a granite-faced bridge but on the advice of Humphreys the elevations were redesigned in steel, with the piers being the only features left in granite. Opened in 1932 and considered by Blomfield to be one of the works he wished to be remembered for. This drawing is possibly the one exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in 1925 (no. 1115).
NOTES: One of the small harbours along the Bay of Naples, once isolated hamlets, now suburbs of Naples. This drawing is in a small Italian sketchbook, dated 'Napoli, April 17, 1815', from Cockerell's Grand Tour of the eastern Mediterranean and Italy between 1810 and 1817.
NOTES: This drawing is from an album of designs and sketches by Hunt, who appears to have been an amateur architect. None of these designs are known to have been executed. The drawings seem to date from the mid-1760s to the mid-1790s.
