Notes

Soane had already excavated and strengthened the foundations of the later south-east Transfer Office in 1817-1818. The 1821 date of drawing 100 indicates that the perspective must show the later south Transfer Office's foundation arches.

Drawing 100 corresponds to some of the foundations shown in the progress drawings 93 to 94 and the designs shown on drawings 95 to 99.

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.
