Two Village Schools, Stanford and Cholsey, Berkshire UK, 1880, Original Plan. William Penstone.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of Two Village Schools, Stanford and Cholsey, Berkshire, 1880, England. HAND-COLORED. William Penstone, Architect. From the Building News, October 1, 1880.
This picture is extremely hard to find, as the 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 8.5 x 11.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 12 by 16 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with very light browning.
This is a highly unusual, scarce item. See our other auctions for more hand-colored original plans.
