Finials: A View of Downtown Iowa City (Paperback)

Finials: A View of Downtown Iowa City Cover Image
Special Order


In a time of great change in our city, when high-rises are being planned, and the comfort of traditionally scaled buildings is disappearing, it may be good to pause and look at what once was here, what’s left and what should remain. A collection of photographs from the State Historical Society of Iowa and the University of Iowa Library Special Collections among others accompany guest essays on the value of preserving remnants of our past for both historical and environmental reasons.

Finials: A View of Downtown Iowa City has been generously funded by Friends of Historic Preservation, making its publication possible. Proceeds from the sale of the book will return to Friends for future educational, restoration and salvage projects.
