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!
