If an original drawing was erased and redrawn, how would that affect the file number?
This is like the Frank Lincoln Wright business, assumptions made based on a lack of information rather than proof based on evidence.
mid 'eighties when the Monographs were published and 2009 (Taschen), a third digit was added to the right of the decimal point, presumably to accommodate
a greater number of drawings for some projects.
Thus, changes in thinking about chronology led to different dates being given to some projects, while the original file numbers remained unchanged. Many such
discrepancies are visible on the pages of the Taschen volumes.
After contacting the Glencoe Historical Society I found out this 1920 house is by John S. Van Bergen.
Here are some photos of the remodeled interiors:

corner cubes deployed by Griffin in his original. Is it a relief to have someone copying Griffin rather than Wright -- for a change ?
Still -- John's earlier black-and-white image is so much more appealing that the colored one -- color being redundant when the
house has been dip-finished -- sterilized -- in creamy white ?
And -- if a house is going to have cheeks, nothing is cheekier than Wright's C E Brown residence:
(Severe editing, and/or strict "color coordination," make for appealing images, which isn't the same thing as comfort or delight, when occupying the space.)
I like the "hidden" front door and the cantilevered porch roof and the siding.
Last time I was there, there was a nice oriental-style garden between the front of the house and the city sidewalk.
I hope those downspouts on the cantilevered porch roof a no longer there.SDR wrote:

I find the date of this house interesting (1905) as it predates FLW's published Fireproof House of Apr 1907.
Tan-y-deri is dated 1907.
Are there other FLW "foursquares" that predate 1907?
Rather than an L-shaped living-dining arrangement, the plan puts the dining space on-axis with the central chimney and opposite the symmetrical living room.
