Title: 1) Price Tower 1954 (1952 - S.355). Frank Lloyd Wright meets with Howard Price, Jr. and Haskell Culwell in his office at Taliesin West.

Description: Haskell Culwell (standing) is pointing out problems on the blueprints that arose during construction. Frank Lloyd Wright is listening, his hand over his chin, deep in thought. Text accompanying five photographs: "Latest Stopper. An 18 story office and apartment building which will cost more per square foot than probably any other such structure ever built is the latest Wright design causing comment. The ‘skyscraper,’ now going up in Bartlesville Okla., for the H. C. Price Co., a pipeline construction firm, is expected to bring so much publicity that it will turn out to be a cheap investment. Basically, the tower is built around four separate, hollow concrete fins set together like a pinwheel. Wright is shown in discussion with Haskell Culwell (standing), the Oklahoma City contractor, and Howard Price, Jr., son of the pipe firms head, as they talk over some problems which arose in the construction. Wright listens to the problems in his office, make some tentative suggestions and hears others, then settles back happily. The building supposedly is a design Wright has had in mind and worked over for 20 years." Hand written on verso: "Frank L. Wright - Roto 54 - 3/14."

Harold Price Sr. Residence, Paradise Valley, Ariz, 2004
     
Harold Price Sr. Residence, Paradise Valley, Ariz, 2004 (1954 - S.378). Set of 19 images photographed in 2004. Designed in 1954 as a summer home, and given the name "Grandma’s House." After Harold Price’s death on January 28, 1962, the home was sold to U-Haul company president, Sam Shoen. The Shoen’s formed U-Haul in 1945. When they planned on relocation the headquarters to Phoenix, Arizona, Sam’s first step was purchasing a home for his large family. He purchased the Price Residence in 1964. It remained in the family as a private   home for three generations. In 1997, U-haul Corporation set up U-Haul House, which eventually formed the Price House Foundation with the purpose of preserving the Harold C. Price Sr. House. On April 26, 2004, we had the opportunity to view the Price Residence from a distance. In an effort to expedite adding these photographs to this website, we have dispensed with a description for each photograph. Set of 19 images photographed by Douglas M. Steiner on April 26, 2004.
