Review:

"New Orleans is one of America's richest architectural possessions. . . .

Book Description Pelican Publishing Co, United States, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. 2010. Language: English . Brand New Book. New Orleans is one of America s richest architectural possessions. . . . These architecture books lay a solid foundation in the field, are a great gift to general historians, and, as the authors hoped, have contributed immeasurably to the maintenance of extant architectural treasures. -The New Republic This volume in the authoritative New Orleans Architecture Series focuses on Uptown New Orleans. The city of Jefferson, bounded by Freret Street, Toledano Street, Joseph Street, and the Mississippi River, was an independent town from 1850 to 1870 and still forms the core of the Uptown section. Here tree-shaded streets, broad lawns, and great avenues serve as the setting for a splendid array of building types. From the ubiquitous shotgun-style cottages to the monumental mansions of St. Charles Avenue, the Jefferson City area is a treasure-trove of nineteenth-century architecture. The book describes how the development of Jefferson City was spurred by the growth of New Orleans and was made possible by improvements in drainage and the construction of the Carrollton Railroad-now the historic St. Charles streetcar line. A thoroughly researched history of the area tells how the land was transformed from the sprawling plantation granted to the Sieur de Bienville to an agricultural suburb to the elegant residential district of the 1870s and after. And a complete architectural inventory lists all the noteworthy buildings of the neighborhood. The New Orleans Architecture Series consists of Volume I: The Lower Garden District, Volume II: The American Sector, Volume III: The Cemeteries, Volume IV: The Creole Faubourgs, Volume V: The Esplanade Ridge, Volume VI: Faubourg Tremi1/2 and the Bayou Road, Volume VII: Jefferson City, and Volume VIII: The University Section, all available from Pelican.
