Town Hall and Municipal Buildings, Brisbane, Australia, 1884, Original Plan. Leeming & Leeming.
A Beautifully Detailed Original Plan of the Brisbane Town Hall and Municipal Buildings in Brisbane, Australia. HAND-COLORED. Leeming & Leeming, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, November 21, 1884.
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 17.25 by 13 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 20 by 16 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.
