In any event, and overlooking the inexplicable sound track and graphics, we do have something to be thankful for: these two vintage (I guess) photos.
In one we see something rarely so well illustrated, namely Wright's thoughtful provision for daylighting of the interior by means of ceiling-high glazing.
Specifically, the photo above shows some very prominent and "white" bed joints to the fireplace brickwork, while the more
recent one, below, exhibits perhaps the thinnest mortar bed of any Wright brickwork I've seen. How could this be ? Do the
color photos show a fireplace rebuilt following the move ?
There are the same number of brick courses in both photos, and the long brick-colored lintel could be the same, as well . . .
