Riverside, Illinois 1914

Estate plan

This drawing of the proposed landscaping was mounted on a large masonite panel by John Jager in preparation for the Purcell and Elmslie exhibition at the Walker Art Center in 1953.  This image was scanned from a slightly fuzzy 35 mm slide.

Collection: Possibly this is now housed at the Northwest Architectural Archives, but I don't know.  Was located in the traveling exhibit plywood storage cases held by David Gebhard in 1981.
