Hoover Dam, the Erie Canal, the steel mills of Pittsburgh-America's contributions to industry and technology are among our finest achievements. This book, the only comprehensive illustrated history of American industrial architecture and civil engineering from the 18th to 20th centuries, is an invaluable record of a key aspect of our heritage-and a proud testament to American ingenuity. The lively, informative text is illustrated with compelling photographs, both historic and contemporary, most from the impressive collection of the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) of the National Park Service. Among the sites featured are the early factories and textile mills of Paterson, New Jersey, and Lowell, Massachusetts, where the American Industrial Revolution began; the innovative River Rouge automobile plant in Dearborn, Michigan; the Sloss Iron Furnaces of Birmingham, Alabama, center of the cast-iron industry; and all types of bridges, from covered wooden structures to the great Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. LOUIS BERGERON, president of TICCIH (The international committee for the conservation of the Industrial Heritage), has been a visiting professor from France at Cornell and New York University, among other universities. MARIA TERESA MAIULLARI-PONTOIS, secretary of TICCIH, teaches part-time at the Universite de Paris IV-Sorbonne. 350 black-and-white illustrations, 97/8 x 111/4"
