Praise for Going to Town
"[Katherine Ashenburg] brings a fresh and forthright perspective to
bear on our architecture
in general and specific buildings in particular. In her opening essay,
'How to Read an Ontario Town,' for example, she eloquently captures the
characteristic restraint and conservatism of Ontario's architecture ...
Ashenburg's 'readings' of many of the communities she discusses reveal a
similar talent for getting beneath the surface."
"It would be a dull person indeed who doesn't find that Going to Town: Architectural Walking Tours in Southern Ontario
opens up a whole world that has existed on the doorstep unnoticed. ...
Ashenburg makes a thoroughly agreeable companion, striking the right
balance between erudition and gossip..."
