24 page stapled booklet promoting the construction of schools from concrete, primarily for their fire resistance. Approximately half text and half black and white photos of splendid examples of concrete school design including: Durant School, Oakland, CA; Jefferson School, Salt Lake City; Washington High School, Milwaukee; Culver City Grammar School; Morgan Park Public School, Duluth; Public School, Mineville, NY; Lockwood School, Oakland, CA; Emerson School, Oakland, CA; Oklahoma City High School; Central School Building, Lake Charles, LA; East Side High School, Salt Lake City; Technical High School, Oakland, CA; Watsonville, CA High School; Lincoln Public School, Summit, NJ; and more. Architects of these schools include: John J. Donovan; Van Ryn & DeGelleke; Oliver P. Dennis; Kelly & WILLIAMS: Layton, Smith & Forsyyth; W.J. Jennings; and more. Back cover suggests a printing date of 1921. Our research suggests this may be a reprint. Attractive cover photo of the precast concrete stone entrance of the Healdsburg, CA High School, William H. Weeks, Architect. Average wear. Center page loose but present. Tiny tick mark on front cover otherwise unmarked. A worthy vintage copy.
