California Architecture in Santa Barbara.

California Architecture in Santa Barbara California Architecture in Santa Barbara, by H. Philip Staats (Architectural Book Publishing Company, Inc., Stamford, Conn., 1990> $24.50), focuses on Spanish colonial revival buildings constructed in Santa Barbara as part of the general rebuilding after the 1925 earthquake. It includes vintage black-and-white photographs of 31 houses, along with several floor plans. Although some of the images are a little indistinct, they do enable you to see how these houses are originally furnished.

The book was first published in 1929. A new introduction by architectural historian David Gebhard, who teaches at the University of California at Santa Barbara (where he founded an extensive architectural archive), puts the period into perspective.
