About this title

Synopsis:

From dusty prairie village to one of the nation's ten largest cities, Dallas has been defined by bold personalities and big buildings. They are all here in this book-the bankers, oil men, cotton brokers, merchants, and insurance titans who created the future and built the monumental structures that reflected their success. Today, gleaming new office towers nestle comfortably with century-old residential conversations. The architectural diversity and rich past of the city are brought to life in this lavishly illustrated volume by a native Dallasite.

About the Author:

Mark Rice grew up in Dallas and has spent much of his career working among the buildings featured in this book. As a youngster, he developed an interest in historic downtown while accompanying his father, a court reporter with an office in the Kirby building. This background, along with a degree in history and long- time interests in photography and architecture led to the extensive research that went into the writing of this compelling story.
