 The 'Bootleg' Homes 
   
 From 1889 to 1893, the young Frank Lloyd Wright, at the beginning of his illustrious career, was an apprentice draftsman for the notable Louis Sullivan. During this period, Wright designed nine homes while 'moonlighting' in his home studio in the evenings. Eventually, his work on these homes was discovered and Wright was dismissed by Sullivan. These nine homes came to be known as the 'bootleg' homes. All remain today in Illinois, two in Chicago, three in LaGrange, and four in Oak Park, Wright's hometown at the time.
