Downing (1865-1918) was an Atlanta architect who left his mark on his city and his nation, being responsible for several Georgia landmarks listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including some of Atlanta's oldest extant churches, many fine homes in Inman Park, and skyscrapers like the Healey Building in the Fairlie-Poplar district. This volume of Downing's residential projects includes some of his most well-known work: the Capt. Edward Gay House (now Training and Counseling Center at Saint Luke's), the John Grant House (now the Cherokee Town Club), and the William P. Nicolson House. Downing designed the residence of Samuel Martin Inman, after whom Inman Park was named. Illustrated in tissue-guarded photogravure plates throughout, this rare collection of Downing's domestic work lends the reader a special look into the innovative and sophisticated architecture emerging in late Victorian Atlanta. A unique view into the life of fine Atlanta homes in the late Victorian era through the eyes of the architect responsible for many of the city's most revered and historically significant buildings.
