Charcoal drawings, Holloway College, about 1937

My late mother created these charcoal drawings when she was a student at Royal Holloway College. They are all 19 x 12.5 inches (48 x 32 cm). I assume they were done in 1936, ’37, or ’38. She graduated in German in 1939 (the same year that war broke out with Germany, coincidentally). I do not know where the outdoors drawings were done. However, the stone railing (or whatever it is called) with spheres on resembles that in a contemporary campus photo.
