Parsonage for the Central Presbyterian Church, Denver, CO, 1890, Photogravure. Kidder & Humphreys.
A Beautifully Detailed Photogravure of the Parsonage for the Central Presbyterian Church in Denver, Colorado. HAND-COLORED. Kidder & Humphreys, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, November 1, 1890.
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.
