General View, Town Hall Design, Birkenhead, England, 1882, Original Plan
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the General View of the Town Hall in Birkenhead, England. HAND-COLORED. Unknown, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, November 3, 1882.
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 15.75 by 12.25 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 19.5 by 15.5 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with very light browning and some minor crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
