An Original Photogravure of the Design for Oxford Municipal Buildings in UK. EARLY PICTURE. J. Hewitt, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, July 23, 1892. This is an original photogravure 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 photogravures only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. This is from the architect Bruce Price's collection. It measures 17.75 by 13.25 inches. LARGE PICTURE. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 19.25 by 16 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG condition with some light browning and crinkling.
