A final acknowledgement

It has been difficult to track down some of the sources of information included in this book. A number of the photographs that form part of my collection were given to me by students and colleagues over the past 20 years. I no longer have a record of their provenance. A number of the drawings prepared for this text are based on more than one source and who holds the original copyright is unclear. Every effort has, however, been made to contact and credit the copyright holders of all this material. In a number of cases it has been in vain. I thus apologize for any copyright infringements that might have inadvertently occurred. If copyright proprietorship can be established for any of the work not specifically or erroneously attributed please contact me at the Faculty of the Built Environment, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia 2052 or at [email protected].
