Notes:
Mackintosh made a large number of studies of profiles of English headstones, almost all dating from the 18th-century. He maintained that they 'put to shame the designs of architects and others which make the modern graveyard hideous'. ['British Architect', 22 November, 1895, p. 360] The window is from the south porch of Westwick church and the 18th-century wall tablet is on the exterior of its south wall. The page has been inaccurately numbered "19" in an unknown hand. The drawing probably dates to Mackintosh's trips to Norfolk in 1896 and 1897.
