Summary

  • This hand-colored 1867 lithograph by architect Samuel Sloan (1815--84) was a plate in an architectural design book; it illustrated a perspective view of a symmetrical, Italian-style, suburban mansion. The mansion was located on the edge of Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia, on the northeast corner of Eighteenth and Locust Streets. It was built in 1855--57 after designs by Samuel Sloan, for Joseph Harrison, Jr., a prominent Philadelphia man known for his innovative design of a locomotive engine. In this view, pedestrian traffic is seen passing in front of the home, including two gentlemen on horseback, a man and woman walking, and a horse-drawn carriage. This print was produced by the firm of Louis N. Rosenthal, a pioneer chromolithographer who operated the Philadelphia firm Rosenthal's Lithography with his brothers Max, Morris, and Simon circa 1851--72. Rosenthal was born in Turck, Russian Poland around 1824, and immigrated to the United States in 1848.
