Liberty Enshrined

The commemorative tradition in early American art is considered for the first time in Sally Webster's study of public monuments and the construction of an American patronymic tradition.

The Urban Department Store in America, 1850–1930
The Urban Department Store in America, 1850–1930
Louisa Iarocci

The Urban Department Store in America, 1850–1930

In the late nineteenth century, the urban department store arose as a built artifact and as a social institution in the United States. While the physical building type is the foundation of this comprehensive architectural study, Iarocci reaches beyond the analysis of the brick and mortar to reconsider how the ‘spaces of selling’ were culturally-produced spaces, as well as the product of interrelated economic, social, technological and aesthetic forces.

Money Pits: British Mining Companies in the Californian and Australian Gold Rushes of the 1850s

Between 1849 and 1853, shares in nearly 120 public companies to exploit the booming goldfields of California and Australia were offered to the British public. The companies were collectively capitalised at over £15 million, but in the end only some £1.75 million was raised between 42 of them, with only one company surviving what the newspapers of the day described as a ‘gold bubble’. This is the first detailed investigation of the British gold bubble ...

New York and the First World War

Shaping an American City

The First World War constitutes a point in New York's history when its identity was challenged, recast and reinforced. Its position as a financial centre meant that its role in the conflict was realised sooner than elsewhere in the United States. This book uses archives, newspaper reports, leaflets and the ethnic press to explore how the city ...
