At 3'-6" deep at center, the Glore pool must have been intended as a wading pool ? Yet the presentation plan calls it a swimming pool. Note lower pool surrounding it . . .

The unit is 4'-8"; note four-foot vertical dimension at far right. The diameter is 37'-4".

Saw the name 'Charles Glore' as the developer who retained Wright for the 'Golden Beacon.'
I assume this is his house.
Is that right?

It's a BigBird bath.

Juan:

I'm sorry to say that I don't know the answer to your question. Perhaps someone who lives in the greater-Chicago area might, though.
