School & Chapel Bldg., CT State Industrial School for Girls, Middletown, CT, 1885.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of the School and Chapel Building for the Connecticut State Industrial School for Girls at Middletown, Connecticut. HAND-COLORED. J.D. Sibley & Son, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, April 11, 1885.
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 7 x 6.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 11 x 10.5 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
