Louisville's Silent Guardians

9781492722366: Louisville's Silent Guardians

They’ve been up there watching for over a century. They’ve seen generations go about their daily business – being born, living, dying. They were born themselves during the dawn of Louisville’s commerce in the late 1800s – and more were added until Black Friday 1929 brought the curtain down. Now many are forgotten, watching silently over abandoned doorways and rooftops. They wait patiently for someone, sometime to look up and see them there. Within these pages you’ll find: Greek gods and goddesses; fierce dragons; comic jesters; lions; doves - and gargoyles ready to take flight and pounce upon anyone who would disturb their neighborhood’s peace. There are even homeowners and builders who once dared to place their images up there among the gods and mythic characters. This book is dedicated to taking time out of a busy day to simply look up.
