The series to which this platter belongs is also known as The States Series, as well as The States Border Series, due to the states' names in the border.  

Recent discoveries and the research efforts of author and lecturer Dick Henrywood indicate that all of the center views in this series are British.   The source prints for these views have led to the specific identification of all the structures, save one.  This view is Town Hall & Quay, Yarmouth, and appears in an article by Dick Henrywood in Ceramics in America 2011, entitled "The States Border Series by Ralph & James Clews", as figure 10 on p. 107.
