House and Stable for Mrs. Lizzie Brooks, Newton, MA, 1884, Original Plan. Samuel F. Thayer.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the House and Stable for Mrs. Lizzie Brooks in Newton, Massachusetts. HAND-COLORED. Samuel F. Thayer, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, November 15, 1884.
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 12.25 by 8.5 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 light browning along the edges and some light crinkling.
