The Wisconsin Historical Society just acquired a set of early photographic proofs of Taliesin, Frank Lloyd Wright's home, studio, and school in Spring Green, Wisconsin. The second photo above is from this collection; the other come from elsewhere in the Historical Society's sizable collection of images and other items pertaining to Wright's life and career. You can click on the photos to learn more about them, after which you may want to browse the WHS's entire online collection of Wright-related objects.
