Notes

The three-storey, four-bay property is (internally) 39 feet 4 inches wide by 19 feet 9 inches deep and there is a brush maker's shop on one side and a hairdresser on the other that could be made available. The hinterland consists of stabling and yards. The arcaded ground floor front has five windows and two doors and there is an opening for a hoist on the top floor. The owner of the building was John Harrison Yallop (1762-1835), a goldsmith who was elected an Alderman in 1809 and Lord Mayor of Norwich in 1815 and 1831. His offer was not taken up by the Bank of England who instead chose a property in Queen Street (q.v.).

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.

Browse (via the vertical menu to the left) and search results for Drawings include a mixture of Concise catalogue records – drawn from an outline list of the collection – and fuller records where drawings have been catalogued in more detail (an ongoing process).
