Text free of underlining, writing and highlighting. Overall, a very nice clean copy. IN RICHMOND, where his reputation never waned despite cycles in national taste, Bottomley was always synonymous with the 'best.'...As a child growing up, in my ear and mind's eye a 'Bottomley' meant a serious building; more importantly it meant beauty and quality. He was clearly our standard-bearer and, as such, affected the way at least three generations of Richmonders thought about architecture. Jaquelin T.
