| Book Description: |
Milwaukee's City Hall on East Wells and North Water streets is a landmark. However battles over designs and the bidding process became politically heated and personal in nature. Cost overruns in the construction grew to gigantic proportions. The completed building was though pleasing to the eye. Still standing 115 years later, it really is a monument to the Milwaukee government officials, architect and builder, all of whom are the costars of this book.
