Plan of Edinburgh Castle,1750
Fane, Stephen (active 1752-1784)
Day, Thomas (active 1750-1752)
Plan of the whole of Edinburgh Castle, with sections coloured red and yellow, and cliffs shown with some realism in black, greys and greens. Although this is unsigned, the original National Library of Scotland accession records attribute it to Stephen Fane, who was a draughtsman working in the Tower of London Drawing Room. Another copy at shelfmark MS.1645Z.02/8b was also done in 1752, by someone with the initials 'T.D.', who is probably Thomas Day, who also worked in the Drawing Room at the same period.
