Corner of the Ball-Room, Sherry's, New York, NY, 1898, Gelatine Print. McKim, Mead & White.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Gelatine Print of a Corner of the Ball-Room at Sherry's in New York, New York. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH. McKim, Mead & White, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, December 24, 1898.
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 17.25 by 13 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 20 by 16 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.
