Asbury M.E. Church, Philadelphia, PA, 1885. Original Plan. Mr. John Ord.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of Asbury M.E. Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. HAND-COLORED. Mr. John Ord, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, April 18, 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 12x8 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 16x12 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.
