LOST IN AMERICA : PHOTOGRAPHING THE LAST DAYS OF OUR ARCHITECTURAL TREASURES  Cover Image Book Book

LOST IN AMERICA : PHOTOGRAPHING THE LAST DAYS OF OUR ARCHITECTURAL TREASURES / Richard Cahan ; Michael Williams.

Summary:

"Over the past 90 years HABS photographers took more than 325,000 images of some 45,000 sites. The majority of their subjects, the most important architecture in America, exist today. But their most powerful images are of structures that have been torn down. This is what this book focuses on--what's been lost. When gathered together the pictures have stories to tell, and not just about the structures' unfortunate fates. They talk about us-who we are as a society and where we might be going in coming years"-- Provided by publisher.
