Great Hall, House of Paul Watkins, Winona,MN,1928,Lithograph. Cram/Ferguson.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Lithograph North and South Ends of Great Hall Showing Organ Screen, Organ Console, and Minstrel's Gallery, House of Paul Watkins, Winona, Minnesota. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH. Cram & Ferguson, Architect(s.) From the American Architect, August 20, 1928. Reverse side has excellent floor plan of entire house. NOTE: we have two other detailed EXTERIOR and INTERIOR views of this fine historic house on eBay.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect and Building News had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithographs only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 8.5 by 11.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 12 by 16 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more original pictures from this era.
