Dillingham Residence on Rusk Street - 1889

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know where I might locate a photo of the now-demolished Dillingham residence that once stood at 1214 Rusk Street in Houston? Architect George Dickey claimed to be the designer of the home, but it was actually a slight variant of design #485 published by Robert W. Shoppell in "Shoppell's Modern Houses" (1887). Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Those are great! Thank you so much!

I was able to download a hi-res image from the Houston view book right away, and put in a request for a hi-res image of the second one (the photograph). I had only found one small photo of the house in a magazine article from 1990:
