Synopsis: Of all the books about Galveston, one of the best continues to be architect Howard Barnstone’s The Galveston That Was, published many years ago. This poignant and vivid record of the great mansions and public buildings of the historic island city by the late Houston architect is credited as being a catalyst in the preservation and restoration movement in Galveston.” Houston Chronicle This beautiful picture book about nineteenth-century Galveston architecture is also a book about how Galveston’s historic buildings were saved.” Historic Preservation The compelling power of The Galveston That Was comes from both Barnstone’s text and the photographs by Cartier-Bresson and Stoller. . . . The Galveston That Was probes the present on the same level as the past. It disquiets and unsettles us, asking us to establish ourselves, wherever we are, by building what we care about and caring about what we build.” Bloomsbury Review
