Leveque: The First Complete Story of Columbus' Greatest Skyscraper
by Michael Perkins

It was to be the fifth tallest building in the world, the largest manmade structure outside of New York City, jutting into the skies of the Roaring Twenties over the central downtown of ...Columbus, Ohio. Its socially progressive creators hoped it would stand forever as a symbol of what their titanic parent company called "the noblest work of man". LeVeque is Michael Perkins' intriguing tale of what happened when those dreams were dashed by depression, war, and the personal tragedies of the city's titans. Illustrated by vintage photographs unseen for generations, LeVeque uses a majestic Midwestern skyscraper as the barometer for a century of profound change, change that re-shaped the way we see and use cities and their symbols.
