The apartment elevator is out of service as it houses modern lines for internet. I do recall the exterior scaffolding, I forgot it served as a lift.

Those tiny elevators, custom designed by Wright and built by Otis, may not pass. They would have to restore the apartment elevator to service. They can grandfather in certain things though. I remember on a visit some people were taking drapery up to the 17th floor. They used Harold Price’s el...

I do have this book plus building Bartlesville.

I have been to the Price Tower archives where I only viewed a set of construction pictures.

I extensively made a computer model of both murals in Sketchup. I hope to finish the model soon along with a bit of updates to Pauson.

According to plans Wright had 3 murals planned of which two were done. Masselink designed the office mural and Wright designed the corporate apartment mural. The plan is scribbled in by Wright with color notes. A third mural was planned for the conference room on plywood but not done. Wright or Mass...

SDR there is also an exterior pole light at Westhope, Fir Tree, and SAMARA.

Interior pole lights would be made of wood like we see at Offelt (?) and Hillside theater, among many others.

Rood gave me a summary of the photos. I was looking for any photos of the conference room, newsstand, any color images of the offices or apartments.

DRN is it possible to scan the photos?
I am planning to finish my model of the tower but with the original set of plans I’m confused as to what was built and what was not built.

I’d prefer to not see HUD in the tower. The tower could suffer damage, needs a 24 hour staff and security, ADA alterations that could impede on the historic structure. This is my opinion and I’ve almost lived in a 2 different HUD apartment complexes, but after what I saw I ran. Drugs, ...

The mast on the Price Tower was for a tv and radio antenna. Also in the photos of the house you do not see the screens. These were designed for the home originally but I’m sure they were installed a few months after construction finished. In the plans the chairs for the living room and atrium...
