    Old estates of the Brahmins

    I love this book for its incredible array of North Shore houses, many of which have been torn down. Adler's Crane house is here as well as its predecessor. The author's text is a little dry, but it is packed with interesting social and architectural history. There is no color in the book but the author found so many incredible early photographs and the publisher did a brilliant job reproducing them. Congratulations to the whole crew that put this treasure together.
