Notes NOTES: At the time this photograph was taken the Robing Room had served as the chamber for the House of Lords while the House of Commons sat in the Lords' chamber. The Commons chamber had been destroyed by bombing on 10 May 1941. The chamber was rebuilt by Giles Gilbert Scott and was completed late in 1950 and the Lords returned to their own chamber in 1951.
