Note: Periodic remodelings and paintings may change a building's appearance. If your favorite building photo appears seriously out of date, let me know, and I'll try to take a new one. In some cases the buildings are identified by their older or original names. Thanks.

I'm not an architect, but rather a retired Professor of Electrical Engineering with an interest in Milwaukee and its past. I'd welcome any comments you have regarding this effort. You can mail to me here . . .
