Roloson Rowhouses during 1981 renovation (1894 - S.026). "Four Landmark Frank Lloyd Wright Townhouses For Sale." Four landmark row houses on the Near South Side designed by Frank Lloyd Wright get a new lease on life. A suit in Housing Court once sought to demolish the Roloson houses, which were vacant for years and fell into disrepair. Parents from Douglas Elementary School across the street complained that the houses harbored packs of stray dogs that menaced children. Now the houses, listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1977 and designated as city landmarks in 1979, are being rehabilitated by businessman James J. Hutchinson Jr. and his sister, Janice, a pediatrician. The four row houses are characterized by steep-sided triangular gables and rectangular windows divided by heavy mullions. Sullivanesque terra-cotta spandrel panels separate the second and third level windows. Photographed by Gene Pesek on February 9, 1981. Reporter: Jackie Thomas.

Roloson Rowhouses during 1981 renovation (1894 - S.026). "Four Landmark Frank Lloyd Wright Townhouses For Sale." Four landmark row houses on the Near South Side designed by Frank Lloyd Wright get a new lease on life. A suit in Housing Court once sought to demolish the Roloson houses, which were vacant for years and fell into disrepair. Parents from Douglas Elementary School across the street complained that the houses harbored packs of stray dogs that menaced children. Now the houses, listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1977 and designated as city landmarks in 1979, are being rehabilitated by businessman James J. Hutchinson Jr. and his sister, Janice, a pediatrician. Standing in the main stairwell is Dr. Janice Hutchinson, who is renovating the landmark houses with her brother, businessman James J.

They built it themselves from plans prepared by Frank Lloyd Wright. It is a doll house, nestled behind junipers and mostly surrounded by lakes and ponds, one of the best examples of Mr. Wright’s feelings that a home should be scarcely distinguishable from the landscape surrounding it. The Smith house was put together with such loving care that its timbers are affixed with screws instead of nails. For years there was not a nail in the place, but one of the Smith children finally drove one in to hang something up, causing some trauma in the family. Tall people are advised to remove hats. The late Mr. Wright designed the place to the height of his client, who is five feet six."

Caption pasted to verso: "In 1898, Frank Lloyd Wright decided he was tired of commuting to downtown Chicago to do his work. That was when he added the studio wing to his Oak Park home.

1989 Usonian Automatic Traveling Exhibit House. Chicago. June 5, 1989. Clipping pasted to verso (stamped Jun 25 1989): "Frank Lloyd Wright’s ideas influenced the homes and public buildings we live and work in today and will continue to influence architecture long after the year 2000. The ranch-styled house was inspired by the work of the Prairie School of architects that Wright led. It was Wright who drove the final nail in the coffin of the idea that every room had to have four walls and a door. A prime example of tearing down walls or, as he put it, ‘the destruction of the box,’ is the L-shaped space so often used today for a living area at one end, a dining area at the other. Then there were the ideas that seemed so sensible, but somehow never caught on." Caption clipping: "The Frank Lloyd Wright Usonian Automatic house of hollow-core concrete block was designed so it could be built by anyone." Note: The Chicago Exhibit was held from June - September 1989 at the Museum of Science and Industry. Label on verso: "Photographer, Rich Hein. Date: 6-5-89. Location: Museum of Science and Industry.
