Finding aids exist for both the drawings, in the form of drawing issue register sheets and lists of drawings (TPC/5/2/1), and for the sketches, which have their own log book (TPC/5/2/288). Sketches also use the job number in their reference numbers (e.g. 904) but otherwise do not match the drawing series and have been grouped together separately from the other drawings. There are a number of drawings and sketches without drawing information on them, missing titles, dates and/or reference numbers.
