"This original design of this first speculative house for Mrs. Josephine van Rossem in 1903 was so changed by the addition of the porch structure, the expressed timbers, the massive boulder and clinker brick wall, the pergola across the brick-paved drive and the conversion to the natural shingle (from horizontal clapboard siding) that the house was thereafter published as the Naill house." -- Greene & Greene, architecture as a fine art, by Randell Makinson, Salt Lake City, 1977, p. 140. The changes expressed in this set of drawings are later than those which resulted in the name change.
This set consists of 4 pencil drawings on paper, 2 pencil and ink drawings on paper, 1 pencil drawing on tracing paper, and 1 pencil and crayon drawing on tracing paper.
