Tulsa, Oklahoma, Oil Capital of the World, came into its mineral inheritance in its youth, just as Art Deco came onto the scene, and the style and the city evolved together for nearly half a century.
This book traces the current of Art Deco that flows through the city's built history. The present collaborates with the past in this volume. No lover of Tulsa, Art Deco, or of architecture will want to be without it.
175 color images and over 50 historic black and white photographs, plus comprehensive text and a fully annotated map.
