An Original Gelatine Picture of the Fourth Avenue Entrance to the Church Missions House in New York, New York. EARLY PICTURE. R. W. Gibson and E. J. N. Stent, Architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, May 19, 1894. This is an original gelatine picture on fiber based paper.

This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect and Building News had a very small circulation during this time and these original gelatine prints only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. This is from the architect Bruce Price's collection. It measures 13 by 9 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures 14.75 by 11.75 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.

Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
