NOTES: Originally a castle, this stately home of the Solm-Braunfels was founded in the 13th century. However, it was largely rebuilt between between 1846 and 1891 apart from this 15th century gate tower, the late Gothic hall and the early 18th century kitchens.
NOTES: This drawing (numbered Plate 5) 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.'
