P&E advertising brochure

The text reads:

"The above drawings are part of a report, with cost survey and recommendation, covering detailed solution of the architectural program of a Minneapolis church. The special requirements included isolation of auditorium from street noises, its use by Sunday School but with separate classrooms, ample foyer space, no gallery, and ten separate exits."

This advertising brochure was one of several printed by Purcell and Elmslie to illustrate their work and proclaim their design philosophy, circa 1917.  They can be seen as a group on the graphics pages.
