Adams Express Building, 183-189 Dearborn St., Chicago, IL, 1885. Original Plan.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Adams Express Building, (owned by A.J. Cooper & Jas D. Carson), on 183 to 189 Dearborn Street in Chicago, Illinois. HAND-COLORED. Geo. H. Eabrooke, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, February, 14, 1885.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 8 x 12 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 12 x 16 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
