Graphite Mariemont

What a better way to celebrate the new locale than through lead and cellulose.

I wish I had the dates for these sketches, but for now, they'll have to speak for themselves. I'm guessing the 20s, considering Mariemont was planned and partially constructed in that decade. As Anonymous pointed out (in the comments), the first is dated November 1922... and I'm assuming the others are around the same time.

A substantial amount on this locale in the future - our new home.

Those are wonderful drawings.

I had a Mariemont post once, about the first cul-de-sac.
