Wright Chat user "DRN" was kind enough to share some fantastic period photos of the Bruce Goff-designed Frank Cole House (1939) originally taken by Fons Iannelli (Alfonso Iannelli's son). These stunningly rich images showcase this Usonian-esque home, which was built in Park Ridge, IL. PrairieMod readers may remember a post that stirred-up some confusion about whether or not this home still stood when it was advertised for sale in 2010 as a "Bruce Goff-designed" home....




 

 

Frank Cole HouseWright Chat user "DRN" was kind enough to share some fantastic period photos of the Bruce Goff-designed Frank Cole House (1939) originally taken by Fons Iannelli (Alfonso Iannelli's son). These stunningly rich images showcase this Usonian-esque home, which was built in Park Ridge, IL.

PrairieMod readers may remember a post that stirred-up some confusion about whether or not this home still stood when it was advertised for sale in 2010 as a "Bruce Goff-designed" home.

However, the recently posted period photos may reveal that the original house was not actually torn down to make way for a new one—but instead extensively renovated beyond recognition. To shed a little more light on this mystery, I came across some recent exterior and interior photos to see if it can be determined if this home was actually lost or if perhaps enough of its bones remain to one day restore it back to its "Goffian" state.

If anyone know more on the history of this home and if it has been lost or remodeled beyond recognition, please let us know. To see all of the photos follow the link.
