Armory of the Seventy-First Regiment, New York, NY, 1894, Lithograph. J. R. Thomas.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Lithograph of the Armory of the Seventy-First Regiment at Park Avenue and Thirty-Fourth Street in New York, New York. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH. J. R. Thomas, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, December 15, 1894.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect and Building News had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithographs only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 12.25 by 18.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 16 by 20 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more original pictures from this era.
