Notes:
This drawing was probably made after 29 June 1918, the date of Bassett-Lowke's letter requesting a gramophone cabinet. Bassett-Lowke has made a number of comments on the left hand sideboard proposal, suggesting that it be 6 feet (182.9 cm) square and 1' 10" (55.9 cm) deep, with four drawers and a deep cupboard. At one point in its history this design was torn in two; the left hand section was catalogued separately as GLAHA 41666.
