KevinW: Do you know the street address of your Sullivanesque building in Merced? Also, I'd be happy to credit you as photographer if you send me your name. If not, that's OK too.

outside in and KevinW (since private messaging seems to be off):

Do either of you object to my using your photos on my website, the Prairie School Traveler? These are great finds and deserve to be better known.

E-mail me at prairieiniowa at aol. I'll be happy to credit you as photographer.

Not to be peppering Wright Chat with links to my website, but the image of the Stockman House being moved is definitely worth sharing.

It's a beautiful drive, but also has many curves as you get close to Taliesin.

It would likely have taken less than 2-1/2 hours to drive from Spring Green to Madison. It's 40 miles from Taliesin to the capitol downtown. Remember Edgar Tafel's anecdote about Edgar Kaufmann's trip to Taliesin? He reckoned that it would take EJK 140 minutes to drive the 140 miles from Milwaukee t...

I stopped in Cedar Rapids yesterday and took a few photos of the Peoples Savings Bank. The interior views were taken through truly grimy windows, but it's clear that some stabilization work is underway, if not actual restoration work. I'm attempting to find someone at the bank who can comment on the...

Thanks to Dutch architect Klaas Vermaas, the Prairie School Traveler has quite a bit of information about Wright's influence in the Netherlands.

Wrightian House near Makanda, Ill.

A recent visitor to the Prairie School Traveler wrote to ask about a house "designed by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright" in or near Makanda, Ill. Because it was described as having "part of it built over a stream that ran through the woods," I am guessing that it is the work of an apprentice, not an...

There are some basic misconceptions about copyright floating around here. It is not legal to make wholesale copies of copyrighted works even if they are not being offered for sale by the copier.
