Theo Ballou White (1902-1978) was a prolific Philadelphia artist and architect born and trained in Philadelphia, and worked later in Norfolk, VA. His lithographs are very much of the urban school style of the 1930s and 1940s producing a number of interesting prints, mostly architectural, from Philadelphia and around the United States.
We have individual prints from this series for sale as well.
