Notes NOTES: Commissioned in 1937 by the Punch cartoonist Roger Pettiward (Paul Crum), this three-storeyed, open-plan house was Tayler & Green's first work. It provided a large studio-living room with living accommodation attached, which occupied the whole of the second floor. It was built of brick and rendered a shade of terracotta.
