  • Farmer House (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

In the 1930s the machine image of the Moderne house was frequently softened by delicate details associated with the early nineteenth-century English Regency and its American version, the Federal style. In this house a large ground-floor bay window and an indented columned porch add the needed traditional quality to an otherwise Moderne form.
