Can you spot the difference here?
Yes, the name changed. That's not it.
The picture on the left is from 1915. The one on the right is from 1926. See what changed in those 11 years?
Where are the women in 1926? Seriously!
I just love that in 1915 in this firm women architects were incredibly well represented. In its infancy, this field was not very open to women yet Holabird & Roche had many women in their firm photo of 1915. Eleven years later - not so much. Quite sad I think.
