Architect and 'CE', of Dublin. Charles Lanauze entered the Board of Works as a drawing clerk in 1863.(1) He was briefly promoted to the position of joint draughtsman with JOHN C. CAMPBELL  JOHN C. CAMPBELL circa 1880, but both men appear to have been replaced soon afterwards by EDWARD KAVANAGH EDWARD KAVANAGH , who was appointed to the position of principal draughtsman in July 1881.(2) He is presumably the 'C.L.' who initialled drawings for the coast guard stations at Knockadoon, Co. Cork (1865), and Castletownsend, Co. Cork (1866) in the drawings collection of the Office of Public Works in the National Archives. He may be the Lanauze of Lanauze & Stirling who designed Sane's 'gin palace' on the Clontarf Road circa 1870.(3)
