 About the Book 

Streetscapes tell stories: stories about people, about a time in history, a place or culture. The stories are rendered in brick and stone, in metal, and wood. They recount how and where people live: the place they live, eat and shop. A streetscapeMoreStreetscapes tell stories: stories about people, about a time in history, a place or culture. The stories are rendered in brick and stone, in metal, and wood. They recount how and where people live: the place they live, eat and shop. A streetscape can also tell of where people escape to for relief from their every day streetscape. Architects, designers, sculptors, painters, masons and metal molders contribute to the streetscapes as do graphic artists, sign painters and makers, neon blowers and benders, lighting technicians, landscapers and gardeners. A streetscape is not a still life but a live, kinetic, animated presentation of a place and time.
