George II St Stephens Green Dublin Proposal for the pedestal

The Bronze Equestrian Statue of George II.
by John van Nost III.
Proposal for the Pedestal for St Stephen's Green, Dublin.
by the Architect Joseph Jarratt (d.1774).
Drawing dated 26 April 1756.
Drawing in a scrap album probably compiled by Joseph Jarratt or someone close to him. I will be publishing some more drawings by him in another post about the statue of George II on the Weavers Hall, in the Lower Coombe, Dublin and the architecture of the Weavers Hall.
