Notes NOTES: This drawing dates from 1926 and was revised in 1930. This group of drawings for the British Embassy in Washington D.C., date from the late 1920s. These are drawings for the Embassy as built and are therefore office copies, which complement the three autograph sketches for the building that came to the RIBA in 1950. They were preserved in the Embassy as a working collection should the need arise and appear from slight damp damage to have been stored in the basement and forgotten.
