Palace Hotel: Central Court, San Francisco, CA, 1884, Original Plan. John P. Gaynor.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of a Design for the Central Court of the Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA. HAND-COLORED. John P. Gaynor, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, January 25, 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 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 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.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
