- See the Register for a list of individual drawings. In a few cases (1957-11-29-4, 8, 11, 22, 33, 35, 37), identification of the subject is taken from the Register entry. In one instance, the information on the strip of paper pasted in differs from that on the drawing, e.g. "Carneleon Bay" or "Southwold" (1957-11-29-6). One drawing (1957-11-29-5) which is inscribed "Stanho[e] Cabin [...]" is accompanied by a print with the same view, identified as "Burnham Thorpe".
