Top Customer Reviews
I thoroughly enjoyed it.
A-Y-P, at least until this book came out. The photographs are the best part, especially when they compare what is on the U of W. campus today with the exhibition buildings of 100 years ago.
I was hoping that the text would place a little more emphasis on the broader contest of the A-Y-P rather than inumerating the many "special" days honoring everyone from Japan to Pierce County. It seemed like much of the text reflected the boosterism of the local press. Oh well. . . However, if all you did was read the photo captions, this book takes you back in time and will be especially treasured by anyone who is a U of W grad or who has an interest in local history.
