St John's Top 5: Designs for high table & combination room chairs (1865)
In 1864 the College began a two-year building project to extend the Hall and replace the Old Combination Room at the junction of the east and north ranges of Second Court. The Archive holds a number of architectural drawings and plans from this period. This month we look at designs for dining chairs intended for the High Table and the Combination Room.
