Abstract: The collection consists of architectural and engineering drawings, chiefly elevations and floor plans in ink, graphite, and color wash. Despite the fact that few clients or specific locales are identified and only about 10 drawings are signed or dated, the rarity of original designs from this time period makes the Society's drawings valuable.
Quantity: 0.25 Linear feet (ca. 84 sheets of drawings, 2 albums)
