California Architecture: Historic American Buildings Survey

Title California Architecture: Historic American Buildings Survey
Names Woodbridge, Sally B.
Book Number BRB11172
Annotation "The architectural heritage of California is rich and varied. Thick-walled adobe missions and presidios survive as remnants of the Spanish frontier. Victorian homes, splendid in their wealth of decorative detail, stand in neighborhoods crowded with Craftsman bungalows. Downtown theaters, embellished with the flowing lines of Art Deco, linger in the shadow of high-rise office buildings. . . .When properly read, they [California's buildings] tell us much about the values, life-styles, and institutions of past generations of Californians."
