Additional Details

Dwight James Baum (1886–1939) was an architect based in New York and Sarasota, FL. These photographs of mostly residential buildings were taken across the country (and a few during a trip to Norway and Denmark). Multiple images come from Portsmouth, NH; New Paltz, NY; Cape Cod, MA; Seattle, WA; and California. They were likely used as source material for Baum's firm.
