The wooden gate is long gone, but the stone wall and the Oak Park sign are still there. They are located at the entrance to the road around the base of the Taliesin hill ... very near to the dam and spillway.SDR wrote:Well, if the worst faux pas is the presentation of finished Fallingwater elevations and a section while discussing the famous day, I suppose that's okay. It would have been so much more meaningful, as well as accurate, to show first the famous yet underexposed preliminaries, and then those presentation sheets.
There is a shot, the last frame of the first video, showing a wooden gate (?) with what appears to be Wright's carved sign from the Oak Park studio. Is that an early gate at Taliesin ?
