Hier Flats, Church & Genesse Sts., Syracuse, NY, 1889. Original Plan. JM Elliot.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the Hier Flats at the Junction of Church and Genesee Streets in Syracuse, New York. HAND-COLORED. J.M. Elliot, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, March 2, 1889.
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 7 by 7.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 11 by 11.5 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.
