Hasn't this been floating around for some time now? I won't hold my breath.

Thought we had a thread in the fall about the boathouse recreation. Can't find it . . .

I believe this is the article that sparked last year’s thread which I am having difficulty finding as well.

Excellent.

At this point young Wright was still absorbing the big men in the vicinity, one of whom was H H Richardson. Wright wasn't the only one to render
those chunky Romanesque Revival forms in wood, of course, but it's a pleasure to see him take it on full-bore in this conical pyramid-with-bolsters.
