KIRKUS REVIEW

Literally, a photographic history, since apart from the introduction Professor Andrews limits the text almost entirely to picture captions. There are 260 photos (all but 31 by the author) providing a survey of major midwestern architecture from the era of Greek and Gothic revival through the achievements of Sullivan and Wright, to the present. Currently a professor of art at Wayne State University. Andrews' previous books include Architecture in Michigan and Architecture in America like this one, distinguished works.
