Comments : I was going through my archives, and found articles on this house in Art & Antiques, March 2000, at p. 92 (a snapshot called A Place for Mom in a special on top architectural treasures of the 20th century) and in the Philadelphia Inquirer, A house that made an impact, by Steven Rea, 4/30/89 at p. 1-J.
