Theatre and Playhouse

Scope and Content

This subseries contains working drawings, sketches and conjectural scale reconstructions of theatre buildings which feature in Leacroft's publication Theatre and Playhouse. It also includes drawings and reproductions which weren't selected for the final book version. In addition, it includes material associated with other of Mr Richard Leacroft publications.

They are typically drawings in pencil or ink on tracing paper or tracing plastic with or without annotations. It also contains some research material which was used to aid Mr. Leacroft with the isometric reconstructions. There are also sketches and rough drawings.


The material were arranged by the name of the theatre building or illustration reference numbers in the publication.
