Carnegie Library, Allegheny City, PA, 1887, J. Paxon, Original Plan Hand Colored
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Carnegie Library, Allegheny City, Pennsylvania. HAND-COLORED. J. L. Paxon, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, March 26, 1887.
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 16.5 by 12.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures approximately 20 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.
