In 1874, Caspar Purdon Clarke was in Tehran, acting as Superintendent of Works for new buildings at the British Embassy. As this project progressed, he collaborated with local workmen, including two fellow architects or 'master builders' who sold him some exceptionally rare architectural drawings and sketches, now on display for the first time.
