fine architecture

another spectacular photograph by frances benjamin johnston, taken in 1938 (historic american buildings survey) --- half of the buildings surveyed during the new deal were gone by the mid-1960s, including this one which was lost in the 1940s ---

Unfortunately, this house was torn down in the 1940's. Madewood, the house built by the brother of Woodlawn's owner, still stands a few miles up the bayou. http://www.madewood.com/
