Notes NOTES: These drawings, presented in 1938 by Caryl Arthur Ransome Barry (Barry’s great-grandson), would appear to be those kept by the family to prove Barry's authorship of the design in the dispute between his heirs and those of A. W. N. Pugin. A label, which was detached when the drawing was mounted, was inscribed: "The Throne etc. House of Lords (substantially as executed) Designed and Drawn by the Late Charles Barry."
