Would "Sure, we can keep our mouth shut about Wright . . ." be a separate thread, or could I squeak an example in here -- a building posted online which DOESN'T make claim to Wright's mantle -- in so many words:

"We probably get an inquiry about a house every other week," says John H. Waters, preservation programs manager for Chicago’s Frank Lloyd Wright Building Conservancy. "The things people suggest are Wright houses vary from plausible to completely implausible."

The realtor who first listed the house as a "Wright design" is named, in a timeline at the end of the piece. A Derald K Harbert died in Oregon in 1950, at the age of 32.

So much empty space. What do you do with a bedroom like that -- hold dance classes in it ?

Isn't that the way with rich people today? Jim DeLong's tiny Wolford House has a living room 9' wide (with a bump-out for the couch) and doesn't seem at all confined. Sarah Susanka was onto something.

They're not calling this one "Frank Lloyd Wright", but here's a 'Usonia' handbag.

The Murphy Bed was a wonderful invention. A friend of mine has one in his guest bedroom, which is usually in the closed position, so he can use the room as his study. I have seen countless plans of circa 1920-30 apartment buildings in Frisco with Murphy beds. SDR, is that the era of the building you live in? Do you have a Murphy?

Yes -- my 1928 50-unit building is mostly studios, and they were equipped with swing-out fold-down Murphy beds. There is a 38" door from the living room to the "sleeping closet,"
with a massive cast-steel (?) hinge tang with four stacked eyes near the bottom, lag bolted to the door jamb. The beds are long gone; I haven't seen one here in the 33 years of my
residency.

Many if not most of the doors have been removed, I think; mine is still present. It opens the "wrong way" (latch side nearest the corner of the room) but it isn't in my way. I use the
space, 78 x 84 inches, for a work table with sleeping loft overhead, accessed by a steep stair at the far wall.

This made my heart stop for a moment. At first glance they bear a strong resemblance to the pointed doors going into the Bar & Garden Club at Midway Gardens. The proportions are wrong as is the base, but I got excited for a quick minute.

Of course the Midway doors had art glass in them, but even having the frames would be nice.
