Dear Sir or Ms.:

My husband and I recently purchased an art deco CONCRETE HOUSE located in Havertown, Pennsylvania. Our house was built in 1945. We are attempting to research our house and are hoping that you can be of assistance.

We were told that the original house plans and blueprints were
stored in the local Haverford Township building (right up the street from our house). Unfortunately, several years ago the township building was flooded and all of the records and plans that were stored in the basement were damaged and disposed of. So we have reached a roadblock in our research.

We are interested in finding out the architect who designed our
house. We also would like to have copies of the original blueprints.

We recently found an old plan book, “Plans for Concrete Houses” by the Portland Cement Association advertised on Ebay, but our attempts to purchase it were thwarted in the last few seconds of the auction--another setback.

Can you offer us any help or advice as to where to look next? We would greatly appreciate any information or suggestions that you could share with us. We can send pictures of the house.

Desperately seeking information about our house....
