Location of Documentary Photographs:


Remarks: (1) The drawing does not appear to be in the hand of Henry Trost, and was likely made by Robert E. Rust, who entered into a partnership with Henry Trost in September, 1901.
(2) Although John Ivancovich, a grocer and real estate developer, erected several buildings on East Congress Street in Tucson around 1902, it does not seem likely that any were actually built from designs of Henry Trost or of Trost & Rust.
