OAK PARK, Ill. -- Frank Lloyd Wright liked to practice where he preached. With his longtime personal house and studio nestled in the middle of this tony Chicago suburb, Wright got plenty of commissions nearby.
Just a few doors down from the Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio is this stunner, the Walter H. Gale house, which is one of a group of houses that he designed when he was still employed by Louis Sullivan. Because he was not allowed to moonlight, these houses are known as "bootlegs." Wright designed it in 1893.
