In one photo found among both the Christie and Shelton offerings, the date stamp "June 17, 1924" makes no sense, as these are both Usonian house designs.

What the photo of two Madison church seats is doing among this material is anyone's guess . . .

The Winston Shelton project -- or pair of projects, as the house received a design modification before being abandoned -- are found on pp 516-17 of Taschen Vol III.

An interesting aspect of the Christie sheet is that the title lettering appears to have been accomplished with a lettering system like Leroy or Wrico:

SDR, what you are seeing as a '2' is actually a '9'.

If it’s a 9, it was generated using a different from the 9 preceding it. Very strange...

All very odd. Then there's this unexplained photo, included (like the one just above) with both auction lots. The blueprint is not the Christie heating sheet; "Usonian House" and "Wright" can be made out in the title . . .
