First edition, 128-page, 12" x 12", 4-color, hard cover book documenting the remaining cottages on Madison, Wisconsin's Lake Mendota during the summers of 2010 and 2011.
There is a natural desire to build larger modern homes, and that has led to the steady and rapid removal of the lake cottages that once contributed so greatly to Lake Mendota’s accessible charm and character. This photographic document was created to collectively record these structures for a better understanding of a sense-of-place, nostalgia and preservation for Madisonians, current and future, and stand as a testament to Madison's humble beginnings on Lake Mendota. More than a dozen of these cottages no longer stand.
Introduction by Architectural Historian Anne Biebel, with contributions from Don Sanford, author of On Fourth Lake, A Social History of Lake Mendota.
