Newly finished, strangely bare without leafy trees around them, the photos of houses in Louisville Illustrated (1889) become deviants in the imagery of what we would otherwise see as “historic” buildings. There’s is a kind of a non-puritan, non-theoretical modernist tendency in many of the houses, especially in their massing and asymmetry. So was Louisville, Kentucky, the hotbed of a modern downtown crib?
