Grand Amphitheatre Exposition, National Republican Convent., 1880, Original Plan
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the cross section looking towards the stage of Grand Amphitheatre Exposition Building, Used for the National Republican Convention, Chicago, Illinois. HAND-COLORED. W W Boyington, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, June 5, 1880.
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 12 by 8 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 very light browning and some minor crinkling.
