I haven't read it yet, but I received as a christmas present a copy of "The WPA Guide To New York City", a 1992 reprint of a 1939 volume , over 600 pages of detail about the city. Oh yes, and happy St Barbara's day everybody !
Great books. Over the years I I have managed to get New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. NY and LA are newer reprints but my SF copy is an original complete with penciled in notes from some one visiting the city in the way back. Fairly hard to read due to being old pencil and cursive.
