Gelatine Print. This is an original gelatine on fiber based paper. This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect and Building News had a very small circulation during this time and these original gelatines only appeared in a very limited number of issues. It measures 12.75 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 15.5 by 11.5 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
