Personally, I think North Shore's architectural investigation is the most successful as well as the most interesting to date on this website (and I've been on this site from the beginning) and for a whole host of reasons that should be recapped and appreciated by both contributors and viewers of GOFLCLUBATLAS.com alike. I'll elaborate later on some of the factors that impress me the most but for now some of those reasons would be the question of the original architect appears to have been raised on here first as well as the ways some of the participants on this website went about this investigation for the club and then with the club. There have been other interesting historical architect/architecture investigations on here of remarkable comprehensiveness that would include Cobbs Creek, Atlantic City, and Philmont but North Shore's seems to have some additional factors that we should all be able to learn from in the future.
Tom,How would you define "successful"?Would it require some concrete action be taken as a result of the findings, such as a restoration attempt, or is it defined by arduousness of the investigator(s) and complexity of the mystery?
Tom,I personally would nominate Pine Valley. I recognize that some of what happened around Pine Valley was personally uncomfortable for you. However, I found the story of Crump and his collaborations with so many famous architects (before and after Crump's death), the discovery of the unfortunate nature of Crump's death and the discovery of the Colt routing map by Dr Gene on ebay made for the most interesting discovery.
MikeAny idea the name of that thread?
