Thanks, Mike. A brand-new shot.

There's a wealth of Spring Green and other Wright and Wrightian photos in that Flickr gallery . . .

(adding onto last year's thread):
On Steinerag.com I just ran across this 1939 Taliesin brochure thingy which has a Taliesin site plan showing the former grand entrance driveway thru the (sort of) abandoned stone gates and on across the ponds. It's pretty consistent with Besinger's drawing.
One difference in the site drawing, they went ahead and optimistically included the unrealized design for the expansion of the Hillside complex (1939 was a watershed year for new projects so they were understandably optimistic about their future growth).
The connecting driveway between Hillside, Midway barn, and Taliesin to the east was not present.
It looks like the lone access driveway leading to the Midway barn might've traveled over and thru the wooded hillside, slightly different from Besinger's routing (previous page of this thread).
The drawings shows a small waterway just to the south of Hillside.
