This microfilm, containing all the extant sketchbooks of Alfred Waterhouse, covers the whole of his career from his training in the office of Richard Lane in Manchester to the last years of his life. His sketches are a record of all building styles based on his travels across Europe, particularly in Austria, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Switzerland and the Benelux States. His skilled draughtsmanship records whole buildings, towers, roofs, staircases, spaces within buildings, doors and windows, with many fine decorative and constructional details.
