The drawings were prepared by or for the Tooth & Co architects' office which closed in 1990 with the sale of the last of Tooth's hotels. The drawings were then given to the donor, George Tickelpenny, a Tooth & Co architect, as part of his redundancy agreement. Mr Tickelpenny has since 1990 carried out design work for the new owners of several of the hotels.
