This is a scale drawing for a proposed biliard room for Thurston & Co, similar to one illustrated in Herbert Furst's book, the Decorative Art of Brangwyn, London 1924, facing p.210.





The world famous Thurston Match Hall was in London's Leicester Square (nos. 45-46, from 1902-3), where all major competitions and exhibitions were held and many famous players competed until the premises were bombed in 1940, and finally demolished in 1956.
