Facsimile poster, 36 x 43 inches / 57 x 81 cm., printed in black & white.

Highly evocative for those who know the city and a wealth of detail for those who wish to visit. This poster ships by weight in the sturdy triangular priority box. stock#Flat072. The plan is also offered by this firm in a 12-sheet boxed edition.
