Palliser, Palliser & Company of New York was widely considered the most influential pattern book publishers of the late 19th century. For a small fee, prospective homeowners, builders, and contractors could write to Palliser and obtain a set of architectural plans with elevations and perspective views for the most popular architectural styles of the day. An example of Palliser's Cottage Home No. 35 built on 111th Place in Chicago received Chicago landmark status in 2000. You can see a picture of it at http://www.ci.chi.il.us/Landmarks/P/Palliser.html.
