Title: Frank Lloyd Wright and Mason City, Architectural Heart of The Prairie (Soft Cover) (Published by The History Press, Charleston, SC)

Author: Behrens, Roy R.

Description: In the early 1900s, Frank Lloyd Wright transformed a small Midwestern prairie community into one of the world's most important architectural destinations. Mason City, Iowa, became home to his City National Bank and Park Inn--the last surviving Wright hotel. In addition, his prototype Stockman House helped launch the Prairie School architectural style. Soon after, architect Walter Burley Griffin followed in Wright's footsteps, designing a cluster of Prairie School homes in the Rock Crest/Rock Glen neighborhood. Design historian Roy Behrens leads the way through Mason City's historic development from the Industrial Revolution to the modern era of Frank Lloyd Wright. (Back Cover.) Original list price $21.99.

In the 1920s, 1930s, and even into the 1940s gasoline stations were built in the form of little colonial houses, Chinese pagodas, art deco palaces, Spanish mission haciendas and Greek temples. Almost every town had a different kind of building in which to purvey its gasoline, and architects seemed to struggle to make each station something of a landmark in its location...

It was constructed of concrete block with a terne metal roof. This was Wright’s only service station. Photographed by Roy Swan.

It’s not that the late architect’s work is now down-graded; on the contrary, although he was been dead more than four years, interest in his designs is as acute as ever. The house at 255 S.E. Bedford St. Was sold for a relative song because the original owner, Malcolm M. Willey, former academic vice president at the University of Minnesota, was mainly interested in finding someone who loved it to live in it." Stamped on verso: "Engraving. 1963 Nov 13."
