Houston Deco  
Houston Deco

As 1920’s Houston was experiencing tremendous growth, local business leaders wanted to present a new and dynamic image for their community.  Deco zig zags and Moderne streamlining started to appear on skyscrapers, factories and apartment buildings.  As the style fell out of favor in the post war years, many buildings were altered or destroyed.    Undertaken by the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance, this photographic history—from City Hall to movie theaters, schools and a church, with grand images and intricate details—is the result of their efforts to document Deco in Houston.  128 pages, 160 illus (mostly color), 8” X 8”
