I'm trying to see it as the Karmann Ghia coupe, and failing . . .

The tall roof of the "Plymouth" gives me pause, as well. I assume that's a license plate in the middle of the grille.

Probably Wright's '56 MB 300C on the right; the center car reminds me of a '55 Plymouth but I don't think that's it -- and the car on the left I can't see well enough to know which way it's pointing. Dan ? S


Mrs. Wright drove a Plymouth, but I'm not sure which year ... but probably 56 or 57.

In the book called "The Car is Architecture" (Richie Herink, 2015), which contains a list of all the cars that Mr Wright acquired over the years, we find that the apprentices gave to Olgivanna a 1958 Plymouth Fury coupe, in the white-and-gold paint that was the signature color of that model.

Unfortunately, that car has a body that is radically different from the preceding one (1955-6); there would be no mistaking one for the other. The car in the photo is of the sort that I identify with a taxi service . . .

This is from the series of drawings executed by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation in 1989. As you can see, the rooms had already been numbered.

The middle car is a Chrysler product with a split grille...I think a '55 or '56 Dodge:
https://www.google.com/search?q=1956+dodge&rlz=1T4LENN_enUS619US619&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjqitqx9tLYAhXn44MKHU6nAf8Q_AUICigB&biw=1212&bih=539

The car to the left may be two cars:
1. the right front corner or full nose of a dark color car parked perpendicular to the Dodge, and 2. the side or rear of a lighter color two tone car parked beyond.

The black dot at the far left makes me think of a taillight perched on a fin with a chrome bezel below it...not sure of the make roof line looks GM.

The car cannot be a '58 Fury; that car had double headlights.

Spring Green,
I'd really like to see the drawing you attempted to post, but I'm only seeing this no-can-do thingy:

The drawing was displayed properly earlier in the day -- a nice plan of the apartment directly below the extension to Mr Wright's studio, complete with the aforementioned corner sash, bath with shower, closet, and fireplace . . .

Shoot. I guess I'll have to start paying the site (that's a newer feature). Drek.

Sure. What's your e-mail address?

Coz at this point, I'm going to look for an image hosting site that doesn't cost as much as this one wants.

My e-mail address is available at the bottom of my posts.

My Yahoo Small Business Web Host currently costs $12.94/mo, for an apparently limitless storage of images at my choice of size.

Sorry, your e-mail address doesn't show up on your posts (or replies) & I couldn't get it by going to the Memberlist. All I see under your username is the day you joined, your number of posts, & your location.

So it's some glitch on my end (although I'm running Windows 10).

Interesting. At the bottom of each of my posts -- and yours -- are found three red buttons, "Profile," "PM," and (in our case) "Email." At least that's what I see on my screen. I have iOS 10.12.6 (Sierra). I use a desktop computer.
