Preliminary design and designs for a house, unknown site, c1774 (7)

The date and intended location for this scheme for a townhouse for Henry Drummond is unknown. Stylistically the designs are of a later date, and King tentatively suggests c1772 as a possibility. From 1772 Drummond was no longer residing in Great George Street, and therefore King suggests these drawings form part of a scheme for a newly acquired property. However, King notes the designs may date later than this, highlighting design elements in the fa├žade, including the sphinx and the style of the upper string course, as possible indicators. Therefore these drawings have been dated to c1774.
