Dining room, with table and chairs
Photograph  1912

This view of the dining room with the table and chairs is found in several forms in the Purcell Papers, all descended from a glass negative of 1912.  Aside from prints in the commission file and a slide transparency, the image was published in The Western Architect and many subsequent books illustrating the work of the firm.  The table and chairs are rumored to be in private hands at a house somewhere on Lake Minnetonka.
