Architectural studies, 1934.

Blueline prints, 1934, which are architectural studies of various historic structures in Ala. The prints, which are brown and relatively brittle, do not provide complete data on the structures illustrated because sheets are missing from the series. However, the sheets that are present provide detailed information on the interiors and exteriors of the structures. They depict elevations, sectional perspectives, building details and floor plans, and also give information on the materials used in the structures. The name of the delineator is included on each sheet. The studies cover structures in Athens, Auburn, Belle Mina, Huntsville, Loachapoka, Mobile, Montgomery, Mooresville, Oak Bowery, Tuscaloosa, and Tuskegee. Types of buildings represented in the series include churches, schools, hospitals, private homes, and public buildings. Of special interest are a set of drawings devoted to the state capitol. Related material in the Ala. Dept. of Archives and History includes a photograph collection from the Historic American Buildings Survey. The collection contains photos of the buildings delineated in these drawings, as well as other historic structures around the state.
