    Description
    Elevation with height measurements, possibly for the design of the Monument, London, constructed by Christopher Wren (1632-1723) and Robert Hooke (1635-1703) and completed in 1677. In the built version, a copper urn from which flames emerge commemorates the ignition point of the Great Fire of London. This is a different design, but is perhaps related.
