Design for remodelling of Peamore House

Repton was a landscape gardener of the early 19th Century who was preoccupied with the picturesque qualities of architecture in his landscapes. He often produced presentation drawings, such as these, with flaps that could be lifted to show the 'before and after' effects of his proposed alterations. This would help his clients, who did not necessarily have an 'architectural' eye, to visualise the changes that he wished to make to their properties.
