Warehouses, Dowgate Hill, London, England, 1872. H. & J.D. Mathews.
A Beautifully Detailed, Original Plan of Warehouse in Dowgate Hill, London, England. HAND-COLORED. H. & J. D. Mathews, Architects. From the American Architect and Building News, March 8, 1872.
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 12.5 by 8.25 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 16 by 12 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.
