Focus on Architect Drawings

Have you been researching the history of a building but have struggled to envisage what it looked like before later additions were added? Perhaps you were delighted to find the location of your great-great grandfather’s house, only to discover that it has changed beyond recognition since they lived there?

Another of our team’s favourite finds in our collection is architect’s drawings and plans of properties.

Follow this link to open an architect’s drawing for 10 new homes that were to be built in Jobling Street, Bradford, Manchester in the 1900s.

The detailed drawing shows the original intended layout of the properties, including fireplaces and fitted cupboards. A great part of our collection for house historians and family researchers alike.
