Graham Residence -- specifications title sheet

The cover sheet from Armstrong's set of typed specifications. Drawn and typed on a thin sheet of yellow tracing paper. Above is a perspective view of the Main Entry Hall with Main Stair at your immediate right, glass door to Solarium, and steps down into the Living Room.

At the bottom is a location map indicating the locations of "The House", Kirkwood (Armstrong's Office), Saint Louis, Alton, the Mississippi and Missouri Rivers, and majors roads connecting these communities. Drawing accurately detailed small location maps was a personal quirk of Armstrong's.
