TitleArchitectural Plans
AdminHistoryThis collection was originally artificially assembled from various sources and grouped together by virtue of the contents all sharing the same format - architectural plans. Nevertheless, it is possible to identify distinct series of records within the collection, broadly mirroring the separate sources of deposit, and the collection has therefore been renumbered accordingly on the computer catalogue (CALM).
