Notes NOTES: Dulwich College [Alleyn's College of God's Gift] wanted to expand its campus and in the 1860s commissioned Charles Barry junior to design New College, or what are now know as the Barry Buildings, which opened in1870. In what Barry called 'North Italian of the 13th Century' these buildings are now Grade II* listed. This is possibly one of the drawings exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts, London (in 1866 Dulwich New College no. 767; in 1868 Alleyn’s College, Dulwich no. 876; and in 1869 New Dulwich College; interior no. 1018). It could also be one of the three drawings of ‘Alleyn’s College’ exhibited at the Paris Universal Exposition of 1878.
