That was an interesting house before the "apron" was added. Now it's hilarious.

I'd love to know from what publication image 13 of 14 was copied...it lists the house as having won a prize for its use of glass and that it was designed by a New York architect. No mention of "a Wright student" until the 1960's newspaper article.

Can you say "utterly transformed"? A decent-sized greenhouse could have been glazed with the panes removed from this house.

The triple-photo page shows the house at a transitional phase, with the eyeshades already in place but the end-wall glass not yet removed.

That's a c. 1956 Mercury station wagon, in one of those photos . . . https://www.google.com/search?client=op ... 8&oe=UTF-8
