Richmond Indiana: Its Physical Development and Aesthetic Heritage to 1920
By Mary Raddant Tomlan and Michael A. Tomlan

A city's history is made visible in its buildings, structures, sites, and landscaping. In "Richmond, Indiana: Its Physical Development and Aesthetic Heritage to 1920," the reader accesses Richmond's history by examining its physical nature and looking beyond to the broad range of factors involved in decades of growth and change. The text provides an introduction to the form of the city, set in the context of geographic, economic, political, technological, and cultural conditions that have helped shape it. More than 130 illustrations complete the portrait of this east-central Indiana city and its primary features. Maps, subdivision plats, aerial views, and streetscapes put individual buildings in their urban setting.

Hardcover, 364 pages. Indiana Historical Society, 2003. ISBN 0871951592.
