Jeff thinks for posting those screen shots, they are wonderful! That conference table is wonderful makes you wonder what happen to it?
Have you ever seen a drawing of the commissary?
I recently purchased this sign from the Wright auction of Price Tower items. Im working with Price Tower to determine its original location. Have you even seen anything like it on a drawing?

The 8" polished letters, H and P, are intriguing. Note that, in the building lettering shown in a drawing posted in detail by Jeff, the cross-bars of letters like A, E, H are well below center; the H obtained
at auction has a raised cross-bar. The letter presumably can't be shown upside down, as that would mean that the crenellation running up the vertical stroke would switch sides, from left to right...
I'm not suggesting there's anything wrong with it; it's just interesting. It will be great to find out where the letters might have been located, in the building. Along with a C, they would be the client's initials ?
Very true it doesn't match the letters in the drawings Jeff posted. It's even possible that those letters where never produced.
Price Tower has a pair of matching letters so I wouldn't think there was a letter missing but its possible.
Price Tower showed a photo Carlolyn's and Harold Price's daughter who remembers the letters. She is speaking with her siblings to see where they where placed in the building. They are also searching for a photo.
It's possible that they where added at a latter time by Taliesin during one of the renovations.

I'm wondering if Mr. Myers would share
his link and contact with Wright Chat?
In this way we some of us could decide as a group what we
would like to see and then petition Avery for some screen shots.
.... reducing demand on Avery.
(this procedure seems so cumbersome, why wouldn't they
make what they've already got digitized available online?)
