Notes NOTES: On this plan the note for the tennis court indicates the design is based on the real (or royal) tennis court in James Street, Haymarket, London. See RIBA66794 and RIBA68593 for drawings of that court. This drawing is from a small sketchbook serving as a record of work by Thomas Cundy between 1795 and 1820 apparently made by his son, Thomas Cundy junior, who worked in his practice and took over the practice at his father's death.
