“So rapidly are tall, and ever taller, buildings springing up in the metropolitan centers of the United States today that the twenty-story skyscrapers which impressed the European visitor in 1910 have either been demolished or else completely overshadowed in American architecture’s skyward race. Each month sees an old landmark tumbled into ruins and in its place a lean steel skeleton ascending toward new heights.”
