Semi-detached Houses, Axtown, Devon, England, 1880, Original Plan. W.H. Powell.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of Semi-Detached Houses in Axtown, Devon, England. HAND-COLORED. W. H. Powell, Architect. From the American Architect and Building News, February 6, 1880.
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 15.75 by 12.25 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 19.5 by 15.5 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.
