This is one of the series of models of historic London buildings made in the early 1900s by John B. Thorp, and exhibited at the White City and other international exhibitions. Thorp was the founder of the famous architectural model makers Thorp Modelmakers, and built models for many leading architects in the late 19th and early 20th century. This model is of wood and card, at a scale of 1/8 inch to a foot (1:96). It is based on Thorp's own research and (although some features are debatable) this is an excellent reconstruction of the likely appearance of the cathedral before the loss of its spire in 1561 and its final destruction in the Great Fire.
