'Went to Gravesend with Maxwell Ayrton. He had seen it from the river, and thought it would be a good place for our purposes. Although an interesting place ... Plenty of dirty old streets, with weather-boarded house, many of them in process of clearance and demolition ... the general view he had in mind did not exist. He found something to do in a boat-builder’s shed, and I sat in a boat out in the river: but as the tide came in I was forced to move, and did not finish what I had begun ...' (Randolph Schwabe's Diary, Saturday 4 August 1934)
