  • Viewpoint: Introducing Environmental History into Vernacular Architecture:
           Considerations from New England's Historic Dams
    • Abstract: At 9:06 a.m. on July 1, 1999, backhoes began removing a temporary sixty-foot-long curvilinear gravel cofferdam across a segment of the Kennebec River at Augusta, Maine, forty miles upstream from the coast (Figure 1). The resulting breach allowed water to pass through a recently removed portion of the Edwards Dam, a 917-foot-long and 24-foot-tall structure first built in 1837 of timber cribs filled with rock ballast to power seven adjacent sawmills, a gristmill, and a machine shop (Figure 2). The subsequent demolition of the remainder of the dam created open spawning grounds for several fish species and revitalized the river's ecology.1 The now obsolete associated mill buildings also came down (Figure 3). When ... Read More

  • Object Lesson: "Build the Negro houses near together": Thomas Jefferson
           and the Evolution of Mulberry Row's Vernacular Landscape
    • Abstract: Between 1768 and 1826 Thomas Jefferson built an internationally acclaimed 11,000 square foot dwelling on a small mountain in Virginia's central piedmont. Less well known is the even larger construction project he directed during the same time period only two hundred feet south of his highly refined neoclassical house. Known as Mulberry Row, it centered on the important road that ran for twelve hundred feet and served as the Monticello plantation's main street. Under Jefferson's explicit direction, enslaved workers and hired white workmen built over thirty-two known dwellings, workshops, and service structures there that would, in total, enclose over 12,500 square feet of space. Mulberry Row was also in many ways ... Read More

  • One Standardized House for All: America's Little House
    • Abstract: Thousands of people visited America's Little House daily, attracted by the spectacle of a modest single-family house built alongside New York City's tallest skyscrapers at the heavily trafficked corner of 39th Street and Park Avenue.1 The educational demonstration began in November of 1934, and it remained open for nearly a year, during which time the Little House had over 160,000 visitors.2 Hemmed in by a white picket fence and manicured front lawn, the Georgian revival house and its suburban details must have looked especially odd to visitors given its Midtown location just a few blocks from Grand Central Station. The strangeness of the small suburban lot in the middle of New York City was amplified by Richard ... Read More

  • Practicing Utopia: An Intellectual History of the New Town Movement by
           Rosemary Wakeman (review)
    • Abstract: Rosemary Wakeman is professor of history and director of the urban studies program at Fordham University in New York. While her previous research and publications were particularly focused on French urban history, Practicing Utopia is global in scope, providing a mostly comprehensive intellectual history of the international new town movement during the twentieth century. As Wakeman argues, "new towns" constitute a diverse category, which includes satellite towns, new communities, new cities, worker cities, science cities, and garden cities. Each of these categories is covered in a series of crisply written and informative chapters, arranged around the unifying theme that utopian new town planning was nothing less ... Read More

  • Developing Expertise: Architecture and Real Estate in Metropolitan America
           by Sara Stevens (review)
    • Abstract: With her new book, Developing Expertise, Sara Stevens has made an important contribution to the historiography of the built environment of the United States. Historians have long been aware of the crucial role real estate developers have played in shaping urban form, and these characters do make frequent appearances in the literature, but there is surprisingly little work focusing on the developers themselves. The studies that do put these figures at the center of the story tend to look at either urban or suburban contexts, but never both. As a result, one can take from the literature the impression that the development of center and periphery must be understood as separate processes. By narrating a history of real ... Read More

  • A World of Homeowners: American Power and the Politics of Housing Aid by
           Nancy H. Kwak (review)
    • Abstract: Nancy Kwak's A World of Homeowners investigates how the American model of homeownership became the dominant housing ideal around the world in the decades after World War II. Situating her study against the wider geopolitical backdrop of the Cold War and decolonization, Kwak applies a transnational approach to the history of housing policy by tracing the diffusion of American ideas about single-family homeownership which, she claims, on the book jacket, "became one of America's major exports and defining characteristics around the world." Focusing primarily on Asia and Latin America, Kwak traces a genealogy of U.S. government-funded aid programs designed to popularize the home-ownership ideal and to provide ... Read More

  • From Steel to Slots: Casino Capitalism in the Postindustrial City by Chloe
           E. Taft (review)
    • Abstract: In From Steel to Slots, Chloe E. Taft offers a rich and engaging examination of the lived experience of the postindustrial city. Using Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, as her case study, she joins archival research with ethnographic fieldwork and an examination of the built environment to unravel the complex transition from steel manufacturing to casino gambling, revealing the many consequent social, material, and economic changes that continue to shape the city today.Despite the globalizing and displacing impacts of capital—impacts that have hit company towns like Bethlehem especially hard—Taft argues for the enduring significance of place and the built environment. Using the concept of the "market-place," she shows how ... Read More

  • What Can and Can't Be Said: Race, Uplift, and Monument Building in the
           Contemporary South by Dell Upton (review)
    • Abstract: In Birmingham, Alabama, three recent monuments by James Drake evoke the brutal official suppression of civil rights demonstrators in the 1960s, from the fire-hosing of children to the use of vicious police dogs to attack demonstrators. In Washington, D.C., a colossal relief depicting Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., the Stone of Hope, is carved with his words. And in Salisbury, North Carolina, a new memorial honors freedmen buried in unmarked graves. In What Can and Can't Be Said: Race, Uplift, and Monument Building in the Contemporary South, Dell Upton explores the cultural meaning of these and other monuments to the civil rights movement and African American history, more broadly, across the American South. His focus ... Read More

  • Food and the City: Histories of Culture and Cultivation ed. by
           Dorothée Imbert (review)
    • Abstract: Chickens in backyards. Kale in raised garden beds. Farmers markets and a celebration of local food. All of this sounds like characteristics of hip neighborhoods in modern cities. Food and the City: Histories of Culture and Cultivation, a new volume edited by landscape architecture scholar Dorothée Imbert, argues that urban farming is anything but novel, and that the impulse to solve social problems by growing food and getting one's hands dirty is much older and more universal than today's urban homesteaders might imagine.Dumbarton Oaks clearly spared no cost when illustrating Food and the City. The book is breathtakingly beautiful and amply illustrated, showing colorful city plans, maps, paintings, and photographs. ... Read More

  • Capturing the City: Photographs from the Streets of St. Louis, 1900–1930
           by Joseph Heathcott and Angela Dietz (review)
    • Abstract: A municipal photography archive documents the ebb and flow of a city, the cyclical repetition of improvement and corrosion, continued governmental efforts to stem the inevitable human wear on a public space. Examined closely, municipal photography collections reflect far more than a series of civic improvements. These archives evoke a city's self-image, its issues, and its aspirations.In Capturing the City: Photographs from the Streets of St. Louis, 1900–1930, Joseph Heathcott and Angela Dietz bring the dazzling photographs of a lost municipal archive to light. The book includes reproductions of 280 four-inch-by-five-inch glass plates created by Charles Holt and his photography division between 1900 and 1930 for ... Read More

  • Canada: Modern Architectures in History by Rhodri Windsor Liscombe and
           Michelangelo Sabatino (review)
    • Abstract: In the country-specific series Modern Architectures in History, Canada is a latecomer and a welcome addition. Faced with the relative ignorance—or, at best, incomplete knowledge—of Canadian architecture and architects on the part of their international readership, Liscombe and Sabatino rise to the challenge and demonstrate "the substantial and diverse narrative of Canadian modernism," explaining how the nation transformed from "a scarcely populated colony exploited for its natural resources to a country that habitually exports design expertise" (335). Indeed, living in the Washington, D.C., region, I enjoy three Canadian exports of the highest caliber: Arthur Erickson's Canadian Embassy, Douglas Cardinal's National ... Read More

  • Hope in Hard Times: Norvelt and the Struggle for Community During the
           Great Depression by Timothy Kelly, Margaret Power, and Michael Cary
           (review)
    • Abstract: Norvelt, Pennsylvania, originally named Westmoreland Homesteads, was one of thirty-four communities in eighteen states built by the U.S. Department of the Interior's Division of Subsistence Homesteads (DSH) during the administration of Franklin D. Roosevelt. The DSH was created under the National Industrial Recovery Act in 1933 to provide assistance to economically distressed areas and stimulate recovery in home building. Historians Timothy Kelly, Margaret Power, and Michael Cary have written a history of the community based on local, state, and federal government records, magazine and newspaper accounts, demographic data, and voting returns. They also spent time there, gathering some thirty oral-history interviews ... Read More

  • Light on the Land: Construction Revolution in Farm Buildings of the
           Northern Rockies, 1890–1910
    • Abstract: A common theme in western American vernacular architecture is its rapid industrialization, marking an accelerated shift from frontier forms and methods to prevailing practices from the eastern United States. Euro-Americans settled subregions like the Northern Rockies within several decades, rapidly transitioning from the frontier occupation of Native American lands to the incorporation of the culture of the expanding United States. As Thomas Carter observes in his introduction to Images of an American Land, "The core values were essentially those of American industrial capitalism—free markets, individualism, private enterprise, technological progress, and Anglo-American virtues—and they exerted a powerful influence ...

  • Research Notes: Toward a History of the Suburban Driveway
    • Abstract: Driveways are everywhere. Like traffic signs and signals, pavement markings, telephone poles, and street lamps, they belong to a category of highly legislated and highly engineered elements found especially in the suburban domestic landscape. Like these other elements of American infrastructure, driveways are ubiquitous almost to the point of invisibility. However, they do have an aesthetic presence and identity. They also have a history.In the context of single-family homes, driveways have gone from being the picturesque private paths described by Andrew Jackson Downing in the 1840s to the nondescript parking pads being built in suburbia today, with many steps taken between these two extremes.1 No matter the form ...

  • Taming Manhattan: Environmental Battles in the Antebellum City by
           Catherine McNeur (review)
    • Abstract: In Catherine McNeur's meticulously researched environmental history of antebellum New York City, laborers and elites wrestle for control over space in the booming city. Taming Manhattan explores the battles waged by the people literally sloshing around in the trough of urbanization that was New York between 1815 and 1865. Her focus is on the loss of the "de facto urban commons" that had long been used by the poor to raise livestock and run recycling businesses and the efforts of the municipal government to control the process through legislation (7). As the city matured, elites began clearing this quasi-common land for residences and parks. McNeur shows how efforts to "tame" the city came at the expense of the ... Read More

  • Bulldozer: Demolition and Clearance of the Postwar Landscape by Francesca
           Russello Ammon (review)
    • Abstract: Located twenty miles outside Philadelphia in West Berlin, New Jersey, Diggerland USA offers a variety of ways for thrill seekers to operate heavy machinery, including earthmoving equipment. The destination's website promotes it as "the only construction themed adventure park in North America where children and families can drive, ride, and operate actual machinery."1 Modeled after progenitors in the United Kingdom, where four such parks operate, perhaps no place demonstrates better the degree to which machine-driven destruction fascinates both young and old. In Bulldozer: Demolition and Clearance of the Postwar Landscape, Francesca Russello Ammon investigates the rise one of the most essential tools for this task. ... Read More

  • Old Wheelways: Traces of Bicycle History on the Land by Robert L.
           McCullough (review)
    • Abstract: Bicycles have become increasingly important subjects. Planners and politicians talk about them more and more. People ride them and argue about them more and more. And scholars across the disciplines have been writing about them more and more. For the still small but growing group of historians interested in the ways in which bicycles have shaped the built environment, today's cities—home to an increasing number of cyclists and bicycle-friendly infrastructure, rigorous debates about the future of transportation technology, and fights over public space and shared resources—offer a chance to reframe historical questions and open new lines of inquiry. Robert McCullough's book, Old Wheelways: Traces of Bicycle History ... Read More

  • Shantytown, USA: Forgotten Landscapes of the Working Poor by Lisa Goff
           (review)
    • Abstract: In the last few years, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and other American cities with moderate climates and even milder political attitudes have suffered a new wave of informal encampments of homeless people. Tent villages housing tens or even hundreds of impermanent residents are a common sight on sidewalks, adjacent to freeway on-ramps, and under bridges. The incursion of such ragged lodgings into the accustomed order of the central business district shocks and offends many of those who occupy the "polite" sphere of the surrounding blocks.Uneasiness over the presence of such makeshift settlements within the bounds of conventional society has a long history in urban America, as Lisa Goff demonstrates in her valuable ...
