Adams & Prentice was an American architectural firm active 1929-1941 in New York City. The projects featured in this portfolio were located in New Jersey, Connecticut and Long Island, and include the Hartford post office and the Yale Daily News building. These architectural firms "infomercials" are very scarce; it was the only way they had to market themselves. This is our first time offering this title.
