'This publication will expand the Survey's audience as never before and is certain to stimulate anew the study and appreciation of this rich part of America's architectural heritage.'
C. Ford Peatross, Curator, Architecture, Design and Engineering Collections, Prints and Photographic Division, Library of Congress

Commissioned by the Library of Congress, Frances Benjamin Johnston, the first American woman to gain prominence as a photographer, travelled throughout the American South between 1930 and 1943 recording a wide range of structures from great plantation houses to frontier cabins and crude mills. The result was nearly 8,000 photographs of exteriors and interiors, gardens, decorations and furnishings of buildings in eight Southern states.

Now available, fully-captioned, on microfiche, this remarkable collection represents a superb resource for the study of a region and its architecture.
