A photo album produced by C.W. Glover and Partners entitled 'Some Examples of Engineering and Architectural Works' which was produced to illustrate the work designed and carried out by the company. This included projects in the field of engineering and architecture such as the Shropshire Sugar Beat factory, the Leeds Synagogue and the British Lion Sound Stage at Beaconsfield. Attached to the rear cover is a pamphlet produced by Central Airports Ltd outlining their plan for the London Airport and Marketing Centre, for which C.W. Glover and Partners were consulting engineers and architects and Charles William Glover was a director. The pamphlet outlines the scheme to build an airport above the railway sidings at Kings Cross. Estimates of costs and revenue are included along with details of the layout of the site and how it would enable all forms of transport to be concentrated into one site.
