Proposed Memorial Station, Telegraph Hill, San Francisco, CA, 1918, Original Plan. A. Leo Ellis.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of a Proposed Memorial Wireless Telephone and Telegraph Station for the United States Navy on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco, California. HAND-COLORED. A. Leo Ellis, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, December 18, 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 12.25 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.
