N Michigan Ave Development, Street View, Chicago, IL, 1918, V H Bailey, Original
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the North Michigan Avenue Development, Street View, Chicago, Illinois. HAND-COLORED. Drawn by Vernon Howe Bailey. From the American Architect and Building News. December 11, 1918.
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 approximately 12 by 8 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 very light browning and some minor crinkling.
