LARKIN HISTORY FROM THE DESK OF SHARON OSGOOD
LARKIN CENTER'S OLDEST TENANT, TAPECON, TURNS 100

This month we are going to look at the more recent history of the Larkin Soap Co.'s (LSC) main manufacturing building, and more specifically, at its longest tenant, Tapecon. At one hundred years of age, Tapecon has outlived the LSC, which died a slow death, finally closing entirely at age 87 in Jan. 1962 after years of great innovation and success, followed by a terrible economy and changing market trends. By contrast, Tapecon has experienced great health and growth fairly consistently through its
existence.

We are aware of Tapecon mostly because of its straight forward blue signs, a large one on the outside of the building overlooking Larkin Street, but clearly visible as one travels east on Seneca past the Larkin Center.   Small, modest, similar signs are posted here and there by the several inside entrances, next to the security pads that permit entrance into its work space. Located in 80,520 square feet of space on the second floor, one hears no noise from outside its doors, nor from abutting tenancies.

THE LARKIN GALLERY - BEHIND THE GLASS
PEDRO GUERRERO

No photographer during renowned architect Frank Lloyd Wright's lifetime was granted as much personal and professional access as his official photographer, Guerrero spent 20 years shooting Wright's homes and key moments in his life. 


Larkin historian, Pat Mahoney captured a photo of Guerrero in 2011, at the beginning stages of the Larkin Center renovations. You see the Larkin Center in the background with only the first 4,000 square feet of paint applied. What a difference compared to today!


Keep an eye out in the Larkin Center lobbies as the Larkin Gallery continues to expand its presence. An ode to Guerrero and Wright are expected soon. Sneak peaks below...


















The Larkin Gallery is open Monday through Friday from 8a to 6p. 
Private and group tours with their docents are available upon request.
