Hughson Hawley (1850-1936). "Pennsylvania Station, New York City, Seventh Avenue and Thirty-Second Street, Looking toward Long Island." Philadelphia: Pennsylvania Railroad, 1910. 27 1/2 x 52 (image) plus margins. Color screen print by Ketterlinus Lithographic Company. Backed on linen as issued. Several repaired tears to margin and image with several areas of image in-painted. With numerous nearly invisible vertical cracks in image not affecting the overall enjoyment of the image. Scuffing and some soiling in margins. Else, very good condition. Scarce.
Designed by the famed architectural firm of McKin, Mead and White, and completed in 1910, Pennsylvania Stations was considered a masterpiece of Beaux-Arts style. The Station occupied two city blocks from Seventh to Eight Avenues and from 31st to 33rd Streets which covered eight acres. With the decline of rail travel following World War II, Pennsylvania Railroad sold the above ground rights and the station was demolished in the early 1960s. It was replaced by present day Madison Square Garden. The destruction of the station was a major factor in the rise of the historic preservation movement of today.
This large, detailed and fascinating view looks east with the East River in the far middle distance. A small inset elevation view of the station is on the bottom left and on the right is a key to the various buildings as seen in the print. A dramatic and wonderfully detailed view of this famous building and the surrounding area. JC OUT ON APPROVAL
