    Sinopse

    Victorian Texas Courthouses have been called the “architectural treasures of the state”. Although they have a number of characteristics in common, such as the use of wrought iron, stained-glass, towers, turrets, and gingerbread, the architecture of the Victorian Era was not just one style but a collection of many styles. Coinciding with these architectural styles in Texas was the “golden age” of courthouse design and construction. The Victorian styles fit perfectly with the public’s idea of what a grand “temple of justice” should say about the county’s people and their values. These styles were ideal in that they could illustrate in stone and glass the power of government and law in society. Unfortunately, most of these great Victorian buildings are gone, but thankfully through vintage picture post cards we can still enjoy their architecture. This book is an attempt at the architectural preservation of Victorian Texas courthouses through the use of over one hundred vintage picture post cards.
