Building of the Bell Telephone Co. of Missouri, St. Louis, MO, 1889, Orig Plan. Shepley, Rutan, & Coolidge.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Building of the Bell Telephone Company of Missouri in St. Louis, Missouri. HAND-COLORED. Shepley, Rutan, & Coolidge, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, Janaury 19, 1889.
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 11.5 by 7.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures approximately 12 by 16 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with light browning along the edges and some light crinkling.
