About the opening of the article though...
The Frank J. Baker House in Wilmette was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1909. Reportedly, Wright himself brought the plans to Baker in Wilmette via horseback.
Really?! In 1909, Wright would personally ride on horseback 17 miles from Oak Park to Wilmette to deliver a set of plans or, more incredibly, make a presentation to a client? I realize the word "reportedly" is a tag to enable some degree of doubt by the reporter, but why include this likely apocryphal bit at all? There was another building in this era that "reportedly" had Wright arriving on horseback (from a ridiculous distance) and seeing that the house was not built exactly to his design, riding off in a cloud of dust never to acknowledge the work again. Who makes up this stuff?
