Residential Halls 2,Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, 1928,Lithograph. Day & Klauder.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Lithograph of Residential Halls, No. 2, Court Between Baker Tower and North Baker Hall, Cornell University, Ithaca, New York. EARLY PHOTOGRAPH. Day & Klauder, Architect(s.) From the American Architect, August 5, 1928. Floor plans on reverse side. NOTE: we have another view of Baker Tower on eBay.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect had a very small circulation during this time and these original lithographs only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. It measures 8.5 by 11.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 12 by 16 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more original pictures from this era.
