Bryant and Gilman

Gridley James Fox Bryant and Arthur Delavan Gilman worked in close association from 1857 to 1867.  Their association coincided with the filling of the Back Bay, for which Gilman is credited with designing the overall grid-based street plan.  They shared offices and worked together on a number of projects, but also worked separately and, it appears, there was never a formal partnership of Bryant and Gilman.

Among the works credited to both of them were the Louvre-inspired Boston City Hall (1861-1865) and numerous commercial buildings.
