JRA Designer Brings in Historic Boston Architecture Book

John, one of our designers, recently brought in his copy of “Municipal Architecture in Boston.” Everyone really enjoyed examining this historic collection of Boston buildings.

The designs presented in this book are those made by Mr. Edmund March Wheelwright, in the four years from 1891 to 1895, when he was City Architect for the City of Boston, Massachusetts. It was released in an edition of 500. Accompanying the plates are plans and working-drawings, descriptions of construction and working data, presented in great detail. it was the first book of the kind to present a collection of designs for municipal work accomplished within a period of four years by an American architect.
