Description

An exterior view of the Temple Club, a private club on West Street, designed by Messrs. Billings. "This elegant structure, erected for a club of private gentlemen, is one of those tasteful buildings with which the genius of Messrs. Billings Brothers has adorned our city. The view was drawn for us by Mr. Champney, and is a truthful representation, as will be perceived by a glance at the original. The house is very centrally situated, and the interior is furnished with taste and elegance. Clubs have never obtained much in this country. but it is not unlikely that they will."
