...Architects League of Memphis



A group of the top architects in the city had organized the "Architects League of Memphis" to promote their part in the city's development.  Their first annual Exhibition of drawings and photographs was held at the 19th Century Club in December of 1913.  They published this book of that first exhibition. 
 The reproductions, unfortunately, are not high resolution, but this copy is currently the best available.  We think it's better to present this quality at this time, while we search for another copy that we'll be able to scan at a higher resolution.
