Little & Browne Architectural Projects

PC009.122D (RS193923)

Description

Albums compiled by the architects Arthur Little and Herbert Browne documenting completed work for several clients.The majority of photographs in these albums were probably commissioned by the firm of Little and Browne to the photographic studios of William Clark (formerly of Soule Photograph Company, Boston) and T. E. Marr. Both photographers were active as "view photographers" working closely with Boston architects.It is important that users note the existence of related materials when using these albums. These consist of architectural plans, an album of furniture designs for specific clients, accounts cumulated by the firm's clients and the architectural library of Herbert Browne, housed as a separate unit within the Rare Book Collection."Book D" This album consists of cyanotype prints of interiors and exteriors of the Washington, D.C. residence of Larz Anderson, the Emerton House in Salem, Endicott House in Danvers, Grasshead in Swampscott, and 27 Irving St. Brookline. As is the case in the other albums, the table of contents does not correspond completely with the contents.
