Nelson writes:

"These are photographs of Bruce Goff and of the Joe Price House. The Price House photos include the 11x17 drawings drawn by Bruce Goff for the decorative windows that were at the east and west ends of the studio office loft space that Goff designed for Joe Price. The decorative elements were glued to inside face the glass sheets. The glass was picked up from Goff's studio in Tyler, Tx and taken to a glass fabrication shop to be assembled into thermopane windows. The thermopane windows were then installed by the contractor into the window openings of the studio office loft space in Bartlesville. I helped work on the glueing of the decorative items to the glass sheets in Bruce Goff's studio."
