Columbia University : Night by Karl Struss


Brand: PhotoSeed Gallery

Title: Default Title

From the vantage point of Broadway in New York City, American photographer Karl Struss in 1910 took this nighttime view showing the campus of Columbia University. Earl Hall, designed by the architectural firm of McKim, Mead and White and originally built from 1900-02, can be seen at background left. This vintage photograph, an exceedingly fine plate reproduction done using a machine-printed variation of the rotogravure process known as a mezzogravure, (but lacking a dot pattern on magnification) was included as a special insert in the second issue of the short-lived pictorial photography journal Platinum Print- A Journal of Personal Expression.


Printed: 1913
