Paperback: $19.99

New! Improved! Updated! Shorter and less expensive! -- Yes, William J. Brown's "American Colossus: the Grain Elevator 1843 to 1942" has been republished, and it is even better than before.... More > Originally published in 2009, "American Colossus" is still the only book-length history of the invention, development and widespread adoption of the steam-powered grain elevator, which was invented in Buffalo, New York, in 1843 by Joseph Dart and Robert Dunbar. Over the course of the next 50 years, Buffalo-style grain elevators were built all over the Great Lakes region and, eventually, all over the world. "American Colossus" pays careful attention to the role played by the Erie Canal and to such technical matters as fireproofing measures and materials-handling techniques. The heart and soul of the book are the chapters devoted to the depictions and interpretations of Buffalo's elevators by the local press in the 19th C and such European modern architects as Gropius, Mendelssohn and Le Corbusier in the 20th.< Less

It is the story of a rush.... The book is an unusually good story; one that shows the inner workings of the labor union, and portrays men who are the bone and sinew of the earth." - The Toledo Blade. "The heroine in this case is the hero's stenographer; but the action of the story grows out of the attempt of rival capitalists and grain men to balk the building of a grain elevator by a set date." - The Burlington Free Press< Less
