The Azola family legacy and snippets of Baltimore's history are told through 26 projects ranging from seventeenth-century log cabins to multistoried skyscrapers. Each represents an important time and place, and reveals, for the first time, unforeseen surprises and startling historical finds-from skeletons in the attic to buried treasure, and more. Martin P. Azola shares his family's projects in this well-documented, historical presentation of their incredible life's work. Baltimore holds a very special place in the Azolas' hearts, and you'll find the stories and visuals both interesting and beautiful.
