Richly illustrated and concisely organized, this architectural guide
provides an invaluable resource for those interested in the study, appreciation,
and preservation of the state's architecture.


Robert Gamble outlines in detail the primary architectural currents
and styles that have surfaced in Alabama over the years and defined the
state's built landscape. The structures and styles, all well-illustrated,
range from folk houses and early settlement buildings to railway terminals,
churches, libraries, municipal and university buildings, palatial private
mansions, and modest homes. Structures from every period and every major
stylistic era--Federal, Greek Revival, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Romanesque
and Mission Revival, and the Richardsonian--are documented meticulously,
along with examples of early--Modern buildings, including Alabama's only
Frank Lloyd Wright structure and skyscrapers from the Chicago school.
More than 200 photographs, supplemented by
sketches, plans, and etchings, provide the general reader and the design
professional with images of Alabama architecture in all its variety and
range. Many illustrations offer rare views of buildings long since demolished.
A substantial glossary of architectural terms and a thorough bibliography
enhance this standard sure to be welcomed anew by any lover of old buildings,
whether weekend rambler or serious student.
Robert S. Gamble is State Architectural Historian for the Alabama
Historical Commission and the author, with Chip Cooper and Harry Knopke,
of Silent in the Land. In 1989 Gamble was awarded the prestigious
Antoinette Forrester Downing Award by the Society of Architectural Historians
for excellence in a published survey of historic buildings.
