Mr. Pitts: St. Katharine's Dock lies off the banks of the River Thames, a stone's throw from Tower Bridge and adjacent to the Tower of London. In 1146, Queen Matilda founded the hospice of St. Katharine's;this grew over the centuries into a large, self-sufficient settlement. By the beginning of the 19th century this land, so close to the heart of London, was needed for dock development. The Royal hospice was moved at this time to Regent's Park where it still remains.
I should like to thank Dr. Rangasami and Dr. Kaburu for their Technical Note, which has assisted me in some practical engineering research in the field of braced domes and vaults.
The task of checking the work of another structural engineer is becoming an increasingly frequent one for members of the Institution. It is a trend to be welcomed but the professional responsibility of an engineer in such checking cannot be over- emphasized.
