Working up from the bottom, here are the seams between the smooth stressed skin and the reinforced sections of the Saturn Five Rocket. It is displayed horizontally at Cape Canaveral but is shown here vertically to allow the sequence of pieces to make sense, so the context might look a little strange. More to follow.

Racks of control panels for the Gemini program in one of the launch block houses at Cape Canaveral.

Lunar Module

Another stereoscopic view of the Lunar Module on show at Cape Canaveral. The stereoscopy helps lift it our of the noisy distracting background. I will post a bunch more things from Cape Canaveral this week – after the first trip we took a second round some of the older launch sites.

William H.Danforth Chapel

A few more details of the Frank Lloyd Wright blocks at the Southern Florida College, Lakeland. The William H.Danforth Chapel has simpler blocks than in the adjacent Annie Pfeiffer Chapel shown in previous posts. There is the same stack bond and cavity wall but the surface elaborations are simpler. The Annie Pfeiffer Chapel blocks carry a figure that runs across pairs of blocks horizontally. In the William H.Danforth Chapel the horizontal joint is not where you might immediately expect, but sits just above the horizontal indent to form a subtle second subdivision, so the figure of the blocks is connected vertically. You can see this most clearly on the corner detail. It was completed in 1955.

If you look at the lower art of the junction between the two block walls (in the centre of each image) you can see the damaged section that reveals the cavity wall construction shown in the view below.

All the images are of the Annie Pfeiffer Chapel by Frank Lloyd Wright at Florida Southern College in Lakeland. Usual procedure for resolving the 3D pairs of images.
