NOTES: The dolls' house was conceived both as a gift from the British nation to Queen Mary and as an historical record of the ideal early 20th century English house. Princess Marie Louise commissioned Lutyens to design the house and together with the involvement of Sir Henry Morgan and a huge range of well-known manufacturers, it became a showcase for 1920s British craftsmanship and design. The house first went on display at the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley in 1924.
NOTES: Launched in 1938, the RMS Queen Elizabeth was quickly requisitioned for use in World War II as a troop ship. It was only after the war, in 1946, that it was completely refitted and relaunched as the luxury passenger liner it was originally intended to be. George Grey Wornum designed the decoration of the first-class accommodation.
NOTES: This drawing (numbered Plate 68) is one of a series of topographical thesis studies made by Cowlishaw between 1928 and 1930 while he was a member of the Imperial War Graves Commission. The series was entitled 'French Civic Architecture 1500-1802. A study of some of the notable buildings in Northern France erected during the early part of the 16th century to the beginning of the 19th century.'
