Fine Arts Building Circa 1901-02. Front: "Chicago. Fine Arts Bldg." On December 24, 1901, the U.S. Government allowed the use of the words "Post Card" or "Postcard" to be printed on the undivided back of privately printed cards. So this card would have been produced most likely in 1901. But the photograph would have been taken earlier. Photographs and Post cards dating between April 1901 through circa 1905 included a large awning on the first floor. This photograph most likely taken between 1897-1900. Image is printed in a tinted "Collotype" process. The front image is enhanced with glitter. Back: "Post Card. Koelling & Klappenbach, Publishers Chicago, Ill. No. 233. Printed in Germany. This side (of post card) is for the address." Postmark December 6, 1905. K&K published post cards during the 1880s through 1906. They published post cards in tinted Collotype in Germany.

Place One-Cent Stamp Here (within a box, dotted lines)." Undivided back. Keats was born on October 31, 1795 and died on February 23, 1821 in Rome and was buried in the Protestant Cemetery, Rome. His last request was to be placed under a tombstone bearing no name or date, only the words, "Here lies One whose Name was writ in Water." Joseph Severn and Charles Brown erected the tomb stone. Under the relief of a lyre with broken strings, includes the epitaph, "This Grave contains all that was Mortal of a Young English Poet Who on his Death Bed, in the Bitterness of his Heart at the Malicious Power of his Enemies Desired these Words to be engraven on his Tomb Stone: "Here lies One Whose Name was writ in Water. 24 February 1821." On December 24, 1901, the U.S. Government allowed the use of the words "Post Card" or "Postcard" to be printed on the undivided back of privately printed cards.

Fine Arts Building Circa 1902. Front: "5483. Fine Arts Building Chicago."

There are no awnings on the Annex Building to the right in 1901, they are visible in 1903-4. The awnings are visible in this postcard. The printing is not clear enough to be able to read the reader board above the door on the left. Frank Lloyd Wright designed three projects in the Fine Arts Building.

Waller, a client of Wright’s, became manager of the Rookery Building and retained Wright in 1905 to remodel the Entryway and Lobby. Wright removed most of Root’s original iron ornamentation and simplified it with geometric designs. He also encased much of Root's elaborate wrought iron finishes with white carved and gilded Carrara marble. He simplified the ironwork design, added large prairie styled urns and designed hanging light fixtures. Verso: "V. O. Hammon Publishing Co, Chicago." Postmarked 1909. Hammon produced card No. 954, N.

Three students can be seen in front of the building. Ellen (Nell) and Jane Lloyd Jones, Frank Lloyd Wright’s aunts, formed the Hillside Home School in 1887 and ran it until 1915 when it closed. After attending the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wright headed for Chicago in 1887 and accepted a position as draftsman in the architectural firm of Joseph Lyman Silsbee. That year, his Aunt’s drafted him to design a school building for them, Hillside Home School I, a large Shingle styled building, reflected the designs of his mentor Silsbee, and in the style of his first project, Unity Chapel, in Spring Green. As the school grew, so did the need for more space. Wright designed Hillside Home School II in 1902, which was completed in 1903. (Plate X, Ausgeführte Bauten.) It eventually became part of the Taliesin Fellowship complex. When Wright began the Taliesin Fellowship in 1932, he began restoring and remodeling the building. When magnified, the front side of the paper has a wormy pattern stamped into the surface of the paper.

Fred B. Jones Gate Lodge Circa 1909 (Penwern) (1901 - S.084). Frank Lloyd Wright designed four buildings for Fred Jones. The Residence, the Gate Lodge with water tower and greenhouse, the barn with stables, and the Boathouse. Text on face: "Penwern Lodge, Mr. Jones Residence, Delevan Lake, Wis." Verso: "Post Card. This Space May Be Used For Writing (left). This Side For The Address Only (right)." Stamp box: "Place Stamp Here, Domestic, Great Britain, Germany One Cent. Foreign: Two Cents." The postcard is printed with a dot pattern that appears to be a dark brown ink, with the text in black.

1909 Larkin Administration Building (1903 - S.093) Circa 1909. Frank Lloyd Wright designed the Larkin Administration Building in 1903.

1909 "Madison, Wis. The Rocky Roost In Lake Mendota." Back: "The Hugh C. Leighton Co., Manufacturers, Portland, ME., U.S.A. (#) 15040. Made In Germany." PM 7/29/14. Circa 1909. There seems to be a mix of different processes. The sky has a definite cyan (blue) halftone dot pattern, used in today’s printing process. But this process appears only in the sky. The rest of the postcard, including the water in the bottom half, is printed in color using a cellotype, photogravure or lithograph process, a more uneven "dot" process. Under magnification, it appears that the magenta (red), cyan (blue) and yellow plates most resemble the cellotype process. The black plate is a very fine photogravure process printed over the three other colors. Printed in Germany. The Hugh C. Leighton Co. manufactured postcards from 1906-1909. They merged with Valentine & Sons in 1909. 5.4 x 3.4. See our Wright Study of Rocky Roost. 0086.03.1209

"Erected by the Oak Park Horse Show Association, Dedicated and Presented to the Village July 24, 1909" (Left) "Published by the Fine Arts Society of Oak Park for the Parks and Playground Fund" (Right). Back: "The profit from the sale of this card accrues to the Parks and Play-Grounds Fund. This card is used by Oak Park’s loyal citizens. Copyright 1909, by The Fine Arts Society of Oak Park." In Bock’s autobiography he writes, "At he time the Unity Temple was being built I was also commissioned to design a drinking fountain ‘for man and beast’ in Oak Park... I showed my design to Frank and asked how he liked it. He looked at it at length with approval, then made a suggestion, took a pencil and poked a square hole through the center shaft, changing it... The only difficulty was that now he began to lay claim to the whole project, and so stated to the committee. Mr. Woodward come to my rescue..." (P90). The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation maintains that the fountain was a result of a collaboration by Wright and Bock, the sculpture on the fountain being by Bock, dating the design to 1903. 5.5 x 3.25. 0086.07.0812

Three students can be seen in front of the building. Ellen (Nell) and Jane Lloyd Jones, Frank Lloyd Wright’s aunts, formed the Hillside Home School in 1887 and ran it until 1915 when it closed. After attending the University of Wisconsin, Madison, Wright headed for Chicago in 1887 and accepted a position as draftsman in the architectural firm of Joseph Lyman Silsbee. That year, his Aunt’s drafted him to design a school building for them, Hillside Home School I, a large Shingle styled building, reflected the designs of his mentor Silsbee, and in the style of his first project, Unity Chapel, in Spring Green. As the school grew, so did the need for more space. Wright designed Hillside Home School II in 1902, which was completed in 1903. (Plate X, Ausgeführte Bauten.)

"Imperial Hotel, Tokyo, Japan" (All in Caps), 1923. View of entrance looking across the pool. This is one of just a few photographs that include the two taller "Sphere Sculptures" that are set higher and further back above the entry way (see Sphere Sculpture note). They are not visible in the 1922 postcard, and are not seen in later postcards or images. What remains on the top of the left column are the two spheres that are actually part of he column itself. Each side is different. There was a matching set in the front of the balcony inside the Theatre. They are visible in a number of photographs and drawings in "Frank Lloyd Wright in Imperial Hotel" Akashi, 1972, pages 170-171, 190-191, 202, 215, 219, 271, 287, 335. All that is visible in Cary James' "The Imperial Hotel" 1968, are the remnants of the two spheres that are part of he column itself (Plate 10). Both sets were removed, the set at the Entry and the set in the Theatre. One possible explanation is that they were damaged or fell during the earthquake, or because of their height, the fear that they might fall. (See 156.13) Back: "Post Card. Correspondence. Address.

(Note: Many postcards have been produced related to Wright’s work, but this is the only portrait postcard of Frank Lloyd Wright that we have ever seen to date. One can only speculate, was this postcard produced in conjunction with the article published in Architectural Forum?) Photographed by Peter Stackpole. Stackpole was one of the original four staff photographers listed by Life Magazine which launched in November 1936. The other three photographers were Margaret Bourke-White, Alfred Eisenstaedt and Thomas McAvoy. Real photo postcard. Verso: "Post Card. D O P S (Stamp Box). Address. All rights reserved – The L. L.

Lindholm Service Station Circa 1960 (1956 - S. 414). Front: "Intersection Highway 33 and Cloquet Ave. Cloquet, Minn." Ray W. Lindholm’s first contact with Frank Lloyd Wright was for the design of his home just outside of Cloquet Minnesota called Mäntylä (1952 - S.353). R. W. Lindholm was the president of Lindholm Oil, Inc., a distributor of petroleum headquartered in Cloquet. The company owned several gas stations in Minnesota. Lindholm commissioned Wright again in 1956 to design a service station on Highway 33 in Cloquet. Wright utilized his earlier Broadacre City service station design, which he had exhibited as early as 1930. Construction began on April 27, 1958 and opened on October 31, 1958. The waiting room is in the glass enclosed second level. It was constructed of concrete block with a terne metal roof. This was Wright’s only service station. Back: "The world famous Master Architect Frank Lloyd Wright designed this beautiful service station. Only he could have had the daring and engineering skill to extend a Cantilever Canopy thirty-two feet out in space with little visible support.

According to Wright, the house was built for a man who did not want to shock his neighbors, so it does not demonstrate the level of design innovations Wright had already achieved.  (Published exclusively for the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio Foundation, 951 Chicago Avenue, Oak Park, Illinois 60302)  FLLW-7 #761424  (Pub.

By H. K. Barnett, 915 Cedar Crest Ct., Wexford, PA 15090)  Designed by Wright for the use of his six children, the playroom is a brilliant example of how he would play with space.  But as expansive as it is, the room is really scaled and built for children.  The mural by Giannini depicts the Wright children’s favorite story of the Genie and the Fisherman from the Arabian Nights.  5.9 x 4.1. 1990.54.1206

By H. K. Barnett, 915 Cedar Crest Ct., Wexford, PA 15090)  Combining his home and work life, in 1898 Wright added this studio complex to his 1889 home.  The bold geometric exterior forms are clearly expressive of the interior spaces - a two-story draughting room with suspended balcony (left), reception hall and office (center), and private octagonal library (right).  9 x 4. 1990.55.1206

Life Photograph by Alfred Eisenstaedt. Alfred Eisenstaedt writes in Time Magazine (June 11, 1956, page 17) and Modern Photography that "I shall always remember my assignment to photograph Frank Lloyd Wright. It was done under such rushed, almost impossible conditions." He had just photographed Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer and Dr. Jacques Maritain in Princeton, N.J. early in the day. He rushed back to his office. Caught a plane to Madison arriving a midnight. Had a few hours of sleep, and rushed to Taliesin to photograph Wright the next day. He was only at Taliesin for two hours. All were shot within 45 minutes and with three rolls of film. This is just one of the many images photographed that day. An in depth article describing his photo shoot at Taliesin is published in Modern Photography, September 1957, pages 52-57, 110-112. 4.25 x 6. 1990.49.0706

  Jiyu Gakuen Girls’ School (1921 - S.213). Undated set of eight postcards, descriptive sheet and envelop. The Jiyu Gakuen Girls’ School began on April 15th, 1921 with thirty students. While working on the Imperial Hotel (1915-1923 - S.194), Frank Lloyd Wright was contacted by Mr. And Mrs. Hani. "This little school building was designed for the Jiyu-Gakuen - in the same spirit implied by the name of the school - a free spirit. It was intended to be simple happy place for happy children - unpretentious - genuine. It is built in no certified style. It has style all its own. Whether one likes or dislikes it, the style is harmoniously founded on right principles... The architects have felt this in working out this design with Mr. And Mrs. Hani, and are happy to see the building carrying its children as a tree carries its blossoms. The children seem to belong to the building in quite the same way as the flowers belong to the tree, and the building belongs to them as the tree belongs to its flowers...

Drawings For The Guggenheim: A Book of Postcards (Published by Pomegranate Communications, Inc., Petaluma, CA) Pomegranate Communications "After setting off a storm of controversy, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum soon found its place in the pantheon of American architecture. This is a building no less adventurous than the modern art hung from it’s curved walls, and it’s soaring atrium and spiraling ramp splendidly suggests a twentieth-century temple built to celebrate the arts. A valedictory campaign pursued by Frank Lloyd Wright during his final decade and a half, the museum was the culmination of a lifetime of building and a remarkable response to a number of contemporary aestatic currents. The fifteen pencil sketches and watercolors in this booklet in this postcard book convey the evolution of Wright’s Manhattan masterpiece."

"Frank Lloyd Wright (American, 1867-1959) began to work on Beth Sholom late in 1953, after Rabbi Mortimer J. Cohen persuaded him to except the commission for the only synagogue he ever designed. The building was to be among the most important of the architect’s late career. The two men establish the fruitful working partnership, and Wright according to the rabbi a rare honor by identifying him as the co-author of the project. Together they created a remarkable "Mt. Sinai wrought in modern material." The synagogue, one of a small group of religious buildings Wright completed, is his only non-Christian house of worship. Beth Sholom was dedicated on September 20, 1959, just over five months after Wright’s death." Original list price $8.95. 7 x 4.75 Pp 42 (First Edition) 2010.30.0817

The Architect’s Vision: A Book of Postcards (Published by Pomegranate Communications, Inc., Petaluma, CA) Pomegranate Communications. First published in 2009. "A preliminary chat, a small scale model, an AutoCAD rendering-all can render the architect's vision, but a pencil drawing that sets the imagined building against sky and land and trees communicates scale and setting as no other medium can. Frank Lloyd Wright (American, 1867-1959) began his career as a draftsman in the office of Joseph Lyman Silsbee, then that of Louis Henri Sullivan-both architects produced magisterial drawings themselves, and Wright always employed skilled draftsmen in his own practice. Much influenced by German fin-de-siécle renderings and Japanese prints, the thirty drawings in this collection show us buildings that never got off the drafting table as well as masterpieces that have recently been lovingly restored to their original glory." (Back cover) Original list price $7.95. 7 x 4.75" Pp 62 (Second Edition) 2011.20.0517
