Facade of the Chestnut Street Opera House, Philadelphia, PA, 1914, Original Plan. Bizzell, Sinkler & Tilden.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Facade of the Chestnut Street Opera House in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. HAND-COLORED. Messrs. Bizzell, Sinkler & Tilden, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, January 20, 1929.
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 16 by 12 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.
