Purcell and Elmslie
Canberra, Australia   1914


20 images are available from the University of Minnesota digital database.  These sketches of plans, with a few partial elevations and perspective views together with some large flat file drawings of a similar type, are all of the original drawings that remain from the design process.  They survived only by George Elmslie's oversight as he discarded the beautiful set of presentation renderings sent to Canberra and later returned by the Australian government.
