Bridges. (CD-ROM included)
Cleary, Richard Louis.
Norton/Library of Congress visual sourcebooks in architecture, design, and engineering
Drawing his material from the collections of the Library of Congress, Cleary (architecture, U. of Texas at Austin) offers a broad survey of bridge construction in the United States. With the exception of a some brief essays discussing the role of bridges in American transportation, types of bridge design, and the need for bridge preservation programs, the vast bulk of the material consists of 919 captioned illustrations (primarily black and white photographs) depicting beam bridges, arch bridges, truss bridges, movable bridges, and suspension and cable- stayed bridges around the country. The CD-ROM reproduces all of the images found in the text.
