Description

The Van Sweringen brothers, who helped finance a new railroad terminal in Cleveland, commissioned Rosenberg, an etcher and architect, to make a series of prints showing the existing sites, demolitions, and new structures connected to the project. The result was 22 plates executed between December 5, 1928, and November 7, 1930. Rosenberg was working on a 23rd plate, but it was never completed because the Van Sweringens decided that no additional prints were needed.
