NY Life Insurance, Kansas City, MO, 1887, Original Plan. Babb, Cook & Willard
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the New York Life Insurance Building, Kansas City, Missouri. HAND-COLORED. Babb, Cook & Willard, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, November 12, 1887.
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 8.25 by 11.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures approximately 12 by 16 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.
