title:

Future Monroe County Courthouse

image number:

P0034639

description:

It does seem in this case that Nichols plagiarized this image from another architect. The image can be found in the May 19, 1897 issue of "The Construction News" which shows the same drawing, but by Architect B. S. Tolan of Fort Wayne, Indiana. His drawing lists this image as "Allen County Courthouse".

This image scanned from "Souvenir Program: Sixth Annual Minstrel: Bloomington, Indiana, Lodge, No. 446 B.P.O. Elks: Opera House, March Sixteenth Nineteen Hundred Six." (Found in IU Archives collection C219).
