JOHN & SYD DOBKINS RESIDENCE (1953 - S.362)
   
Date: 2015

Title: John & Syd Dobkins Residence 2015 (1953 - S.362)

Description: 1) Set of 17 photographs of the exterior of the Dobkins Residence in Canton, Ohio. As you approach the Dopkins Residence from the drive, the design of the exterior is very private. The interior is obscured by a brick wall broken only by vertical windows and the front door, unlike the opposite side of the house that has floor-to-ceiling glass and looks out on an expansive yard. The footprint uses a module based on an equilateral triangle, with the living room and terrace forming a very large triangle, the workspace forming a smaller triangle. On a trip from Cincinnati to Seattle with my daughter and grandsons, we decided to surprise them with a trip to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Waiting for it to open gave me the opportunity to view the Dobkins Residence. A red brick equilateral triangle marks the entrance to the drive. Copyright 2015, Douglas M. Steiner.

The design is laid out utilizing a 2 foot by 4 foot module. Origami Armchair: In 1946, Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Origami Armchair for Taliesin West. The Rubin armchair is a close adaptation with the addition if a carved design. Variations of this design can be found at the Sturges Residence (1939) later addition, Teater Studio (1952) added around 1987, Christian Residence "Samara" (1954) and the Stromquist Residence (1958) constructed by Geoffrey Fitzwilliam.

Title: Nathan Rubin Residence Exterior 2015 (1951 - S.343).

Description: 1) Set of 24 photographs of the exterior of the Rubin Residence in Canton, Ohio. There are three Frank Lloyd Wright homes in Canton, Ohio. The Nathan and Jeanne Rubin Residence (1951 - S.343), the John and Syd Dobkins Residence (1953 - S.362), and the Ellis and Alice Feiman Residence (1954 - S.371.) Jeanne Rubins and Alice Feiman were sisters. "My mom and dad met Frank Lloyd Wright," recalled Robert Rubin, who lives in the home that his parents, Nathan and Jeanne Rubin, commissioned the noted architect to design early in the 1950s. "They went to see Wright several times... The (Rubin) house was finished, and Nate and Jeanne moved in and invited Alice over and she loved it and wanted one herself," said Dave Lewis, who lives beside the Feiman house and knew both families. The home is laid out with a 2' x 4' grid. The living area of the house is a hexagon, with the bedroom wing form a 120 degree angle to the shop and carport. It is constructed of redwood siding and brick. As you approach the Ruban Residence today, it is obscured from the street by heavy foliage. On a trip from Cincinnati to Seattle with my daughter and grandsons, we decided to surprise the boys with a trip to the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Waiting for it to open gave me the opportunity to view the Dobkins Residence. Viewed from the North. When Frank Lloyd Wright  designed the house in 1951, Frazier Avenue was lay out to run on the West side of the house. When the road was actually installed, it ran on the East side, placing the driveway at the back of the house. This path from 44th Street was approximately the original placement of Frazier Avenue, which would have brought the drive to the front of the house. Copyright 2015, Douglas M. Steiner.

He converted the company to the Westcott Motor Car Co. and produced two-seater in 1909. By 1911 they were producing a larger sedan. Around 1915, Burton moved the company from Richmond to Springfield, about 190 miles to the west. His wife Orpha past away in 1923, Burton J. Westcott past away in 1926.

Title: Burton J. Westcott Residence (S.099 - 1904), circa 1912.

Description: Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1904, built in 1905 (according to Storrer). View of the South and East side and the garage. Hand written on verso: "By Frank Lloyd Wright. Westcott House, Springfield, Ohio, 1912. 1340 E. High Street. Present owner Roscoe Pierce, who bought house in 1927." In dating this photograph the date written on the back (1912), presents a few questions. A brief history: When Burton Westcott’s father passed away in 1907, he inherited the Westcott Carriage Co. located in Richmond, Ohio. He converted the company to the Westcott Motor Car Co. and produced the first two-seater (seen on the far right) in 1909. By 1911 they were producing a larger sedan, seen to the left of the two-seater. Around 1915, Burton moved the company from Richmond to Springfield, about 190 miles to the west. Westcott would have been driving the latest models of his vehicles, but it is difficult to date the vehicles in the photograph. Production continued until 1925, so this photograph would have been taken between 1910-1925, so most likely 1912 is correct. The Oak Park Public Library attributes this photograph to Grant Manson. Manson was born in 1904. That would have place Manson at 8 years old. So most likely Manson acquired the photograph but did not take it. Burton's wife Orpha past away in 1923, Burton J. Westcott past away in 1926. Roscoe Pierce purchased the house in 1927. Also, in dating this photograph it is noted that the second floor "Veranda" (balcony) has been enclosed, which was not originally intended by Wright. Acquired from the Art Institute of Chicago.
