Residence of Henry Hooper, M.D., Chicago, IL, 1891, Colored Photograph. Francis M. Whitehouse.
A Beautifully Detailed Gelatine Print of the Residence of Henry Hooper, M.D. in Chicago, Illinois. HAND-COLORED. Francis M. Whitehouse, Architect. From the Inland Architect and News Record, 1891.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the Inland Architect and News Record 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.
