Dormitories, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA, 1897, Photograph. Cope & Stewardson.
A Beautifully Detailed Photogravure of the Dormitories at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. HAND-COLORED. Cope & Stewardson, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, May 8, 1897.
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 17.25 by 13 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.
