Old building catalogs, books and guides

Over 9,000 old (50+ years) books, catalogs and guides related to building techniques and materials. House wiring, lead materials, asbestos, hollow tile, house plans, etc., etc., etc.

Building Technology Heritage Library:

Building Technology Heritage Library : Free Texts : Free Download, Borrow and Streaming : Internet Archive

Very cool.

Nice Library, how did you find that?
Some of those Stanley tools I still have. :slight_smile:

Lucked into it.

The library is part of Internet Archive: Digital Library of Free & Borrowable Books, Movies, Music & Wayback Machine which has millions of books, movies, audios, etc. It’s a great site to get lost in. I happened upon the building library just a few days ago.

That was a good find. Thanks for sharing Michael.

Yes, Thanks.

That is great. Thanks
