The simple answer is that I love Architecture, especially early 20th century American buildings. Since this nations founding, American's have created some of the greatest cities in the world, filled with outstanding examples of superb design that often exceeded even the wildest dreams of her citizens.
The vast architectural canvas of America is a perfect testament to the incredible innovation, imagination and dedication of its Architects, Builders, Craftsman and Artists. From the small brick farm house in rural Pennsylvania to the early Skyscrapers of New York City they are substantial, enduring symbols of the dreams and irrepressible yearnings of the American people.
I hope you find this site interesting.
