The New York Stock Exchange Building and New Addition. Trowbridge & Livingston, architects of the Addition.

Adams & Grace, New York: c. 1922. Colored albertype. 36 x 26", elaborately framed to 33 x 41". Large print of the New York Stock Exchange at Broad and Wall Streets, showing the main Greek Revival building (1903) designed by George Post and the 23-story tower added by architects Trowbridge and Livingston, which was completed in 1922. Most likely issued to promote this architecture firm, or as real estate promotion. Albertype was an early version of the collotype process, utilized for printing photographic reproductions in quantity. The various collotype processes were employed commercially from the latter part of the 19th century to the mid 20th century, and were especially suited to reproducing watercolors because of the grain they produced. Eventually these process were replaced by offset lithography. Very rare, in excellent condition. Item #10400
