A Beautifully Detailed, Original Scene of Government Buildings on Ward's Island in New York, New York. HAND-COLORED. Unknown, Architect. From America Illustrated, 1883.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as America Illustrated not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 9.5 by 11.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole scene measures 12 by 16 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.

This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
