DESCRIPTION:  Reference: Cortissoz 87. In good condition, slight light toning, barely perceptible printer's crease center, with full/wide margins ( the usual pin holes for drying all around).

A fine delicately printed and atmospheric impression, printed on a wove paper with very carefully placed plate tone. The clouds at the top in particular have been left with a layer of plate tone, the darkening of the clouds consistent with the reflections on the street indicating that it has just rained (and two of the tiny figures on the street are carrying an open umbrella).

The upper left billboard reads: The Hassam Book, Scribner (see detaied illustration). These letters are not visible in the Cortissoz illustration. Cortissoz notes that several states of The Billboards were made, but does not identify them. It is possible that our impression represents a state in which Hassam has entered these letters; alternatively the catalogue photo may not be detailed enough to show them.

The Billboards was done from a drawing made in New York City, Broadway and 55-56th streets. It was made relatively early in Hassam's career as a printmaker, and is rather rarely encountered on the print market.
