Originally built as the Social Security Board Building in 1939 (designed by Louis A Simon, Supervising Architect and Charfles Z Klauder, Consulting Architect) this large Federal building in Washington DC went through a series of name changes as various health-related departments became tenants until 1988 when the building was named in honour of the first professional employee of the Social Security Board and the former Secretary of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW), Wilbur J Cohen.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
