LONG BEACH ARCHITECTURE, The Unexpected Metropolis by Cara Mullio and Jennifer M. Volland.

Beginning with an illustrated essay on the history of the built development of Long Beach, this big and beautifully produced volume also documents one hundred of the city's most important architectural projects, built, unrealized, and demolished, by architects as varied as Julia Morgan, Edward Killingsworth, Greene and Greene, and Raphael Soriano. New and archival photographs, many by masters such as Julius Shulman and Marvin Rand, combine with the fresh and original prose to present a city both familiar and undiscovered. A must for architects, local residents, indeed anyone with curiosity about the urban growth of Southern California.
