    Royle and Elder were in partnership for a short time, which dates these drawings between 1903 and 1907. This iconic Nottingham building, built for the Quaker lace manufacturer Thomas Adams, was opened in 1855 as a lace finishing centre, showroom and warehouse. It was designed by Thomas Chambers Hine. Having undergone various alterations over the years, and falling into disrepair, it was finally restored in the 1990's. Presumably these drawings relate to some re-conversion works.
