Descriptions of the Admiralty

In volume 16 of the multi-volume Survey of London, there are separate  chapters on the  Admiralty and the Admiralty House. The Admiralty is the older of the two buildings that were the quarters of the First Lord of the Admiralty; it was replaced by the Admiralty House in 1788. Both chapters are accompanied by illustrations, are copiously foot-noted, and as a bonus, have brief biographical information of the holders of this office through 1841.(The biographies are appended in the footnote sections.)
