Diana VreelandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s archive is in NYC...she was the editor, not the photographer. The film or contact sheets may, or probably, may not be with the archive.
Louise Dahl-Wolfe, the photographer has an archive:
Or, might the images still be with Harpers? Not sure if all photos from a shoot are the property of the mag or just those published. I suppose it depends if the photographer was on staff or hired for a shoot?
Can the filmmakers be contacted to ask about their sources? Do the film credits indicate sources of material which can then be contacted? Would the Museum at FIT know any contacts?
I've never been sure what material the Pauson perfs were cut from. Palli notes that the ones found in the private quarters at T West were replaced at some point with steel ones...
There was a moment when I thought they might have been ceramic---perhaps because of a white color seen in photos (though that may have turned out to be a frame around each
perf, seen from the exterior). If they had been ceramic they likely would have survived the fire...!
Thanks to this thread, Ive had to change the grid from Storrer 3.0' to suggested 3'6" , which has thus required moving the walls and enlarging to suit.
I've started with massing and will add detail once I get that reasonable accurate.
I originally thought it ought to be quite simple, but as I got into it, its all rather quite complex - the mass stone in particular
This wont be as picturesque as the other models. - I wonder what mysteries will be bought to light!
I've noticed that the Square unit, is used in the spatial patterning - ie living is 2 square, terrace 3 squares, etc
The classic Storrer shot

But, knock yourself out. These days we all seem to have more time on our hands. And your work has the potential to add much to the understanding of these fascinating houses---assuming that it accurately represents at least one version of each design !
If its like the others though - I suspect there maybe hidden mysteries - "how did they do that?" lurking behind what seems like a simple structure.
ie ; 2 big lumps of mass at the ends with a suspended platform spanning in between.
I'm glad you found those fashion shots. I'll close this with a couple of color photos, perhaps from the same session ?
