Most issues are there, the index makes clear which issues are not online. I've only browsed some issues from 1956, but the quality of the editing, writing, and illustration for a "builder" magazine was on par with Architectural Forum and Progressive Architecture.
FYI, FLW has 4 houses featured in May 1956.
December 1956 features the one story Erdman PreFab.
I always liked the magazine. My uncle, Bjarne, who was a contractor, gave me his copies after he had read them. Somewhere in that mass of issues is one which introduced me to Greene & Greene.
And before that, in a page of industry news, there is this little piece on Wright:
Finally, space is given to John Lloyd Wright, AIA, to speak of and illustrate building ornament very much in the spirit of his father's---if not credited by the son as such !
The September 1956 issue’s cover and contents heralds an article titled, “Frank Lloyd Wright: A case study of 34 design ideas” on page 134. Sadly, I was disappointed to find that the pages containing that article had been excised.
Does any one of us Chatters have an intact September 1956 issue of House & Home?
