The City of London's City Lands Committee ordered in May 1800 that the Bank acquire a corner of the Grocers' Company Garden, to accommodate a reconfigured Princes Street and expanded Bank. In June 1800 Parliament passed a Bill supporting the City of London's decision. In return for the corner of land, the Bank paid £6,800 and gave the Grocers' Company a small piece of property to the north of the Grocers' Hall.
Digitisation of the Drawings Collection has been made possible through the generosity of the Leon Levy Foundation
Sir John Soane's collection includes some 30,000 architectural,
design and topographical drawings which is a very important resource for
scholars worldwide. His was the first architect’s collection to attempt to
preserve the best in design for the architectural profession in the future, and
it did so by assembling as exemplars surviving drawings by great Renaissance
masters and by the leading architects in Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries
and his near contemporaries such as Sir William Chambers, Robert Adam and
George Dance the Younger. These drawings sit side by side with 9,000 drawings
in Soane’s own hand or those of the pupils in his office, covering his early
work as a student, his time in Italy and the drawings produced in the course of
his architectural practice from 1780 until the 1830s.
