Mid-Atlantic Roadside Delights: Roadside Architecture of Yesterday and Today in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania

by Will Anderson
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Interest in vernacular architecture, particularly the building styles of roadside America, is growing. Dozens of books have been published on this topic in the last 15 years. Anderson's contribution to the subject is his use of many rare and unusual postcards, matchbook covers, and so forth to show the interiors and exteriors of the landmarks that once provided gas, food, and lodging to travelers on the two-lane highways of the Mid-Atlantic states, circa 1920-90. The shortcomings of Anderson's ebullient book are his gushy prose style and the limitations of his own photos of surviving examples of this architectural genre. But, along with his New England Roadside Delights (Anderson & Sons, 1989), Anderson has given us a highly entertaining, visual look at roadside architecture. This book, like the postcards reprinted within it, seems like a collectible. It is recommended for academic and public libraries.-- David Bryant, Belleville P.L., N.J.
