We are pleased to announce the availability of SC-381: Louis Lott Architecture Negatives.
Louis J. P. Lott (1872-1934) was a prominent architect in Dayton, Ohio, the early 20th century. He is perhaps best remembered as the “master architect” of Schantz Park neighborhood in Oakwood.
The collection consists of approximately 632 film negatives depicting houses, buildings, churches, historic sites, and architectural details in the United States and Europe. All images date approximately between 1909 and 1921.
In addition to several Dayton area scenes, there are also images of St. Louis and Kansas City; Henry Clay’s Ashland estate in Lexington, Kentucky; the Kanawha valley in West Virginia; and California. European locations include Greece, Italy (especially Campania and Sicily), Germany, and England.
Two images from the collection are shown below:
