I found your December 1999 issue fascinating. The pictures in “Seeing the Century,” whether scraps of paper or singular trapped moments of history, described narratives far beyond their scope as mere images.

I wanted to point out that the image for 1904, though technically by Frank Lloyd Wright in that it was created by his architectural practice, may be a watercolor by Marion Mahony, a talented associate of FLW who later founded her own highly acclaimed practice with her husband, Walter Burley Griffin.
