Very cool; thanks. So, what do we know about "James Charlton, who was one of Frank Llyod Wright’s Apprentices" ? Did he really work with Lautner on the Sturges house, for instance ?

I had no idea that another architect might have been responsible for these amazing designs. I thought they came directly from Jones, Smith and Contini, and knew nothing of Lautner's involvement.

Um, aren't those two bottom photos of the kitchen and bathroom of the Lautner designed Schaffer house? (The blue-green Alsynite wall of the bathroom was the tip off).

Yeah, those are Lautner. I couldn't figure out exactly why those were included, unless Charlton had been involved in detailing that room. (It's definitely one of the finest and most imaginative midcentury bathrooms I've ever seen.)
