Interiors of the House of Mr. Marcus Sayers' House, Montrose Park, NJ
W. Halsey Wood, architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, May 7, 1881. 16.75 by 24.5 inches. VG+.
Hand-colored Original Plan. Montrose Park is primarily a residential neighborhood, located in the northeast corner of the Township of South Orange Village, Essex County, New Jersey. General geographic boundaries include the Morris and Essex Railroad on the west, the municipal boundary between the City of Orange and the Village of South Orange on the north, the municipal boundary with the City of Newark on the east, and South Orange Avenue on the south. The neighborhood is characterized by elegant, large-scale homes, dating from the last quarter of the nineteenth century through the 1930s. These architecturally imposing houses are set on large, landscaped lots, outlined by bluestone sidewalks and curbs, framed by mature trees and shrubbery, and lit by Victorian gaslight. The significance of the Montrose Park Historic District is both historical and architectural. Several of the streets were originally developed by John Gorham Vose and Henry A. Page between 1867 and 1874 as part of a residential development called Montrose, intended to attract wealthy New York businessmen to rural South Orange, only recently made accessible to the city by train. Other streets were originally developed after 1891 by Thomas A. Kingman (as Montrose Park), who insisted that lots measure no less than 100 x 200. This and other restrictions resulted in the formation of an enclave of wealthy residents and a concentration of large historical revival houses 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 16.75 by 24.5 inches. VERY LARGE PICTURE. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 18 by 27.75 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
