    George McRae (1858-1923), who drew up this plan for Gallery flooring, was a Scottish architect who migrated to Australia in 1884 and pursued his career in Sydney. He worked as an assistant to Walter Liberty Vernon, the Government Architect who designed the Art Gallery of New South Wales, eventually succeeding him to that post in 1912.
