From grandiose Queen Anne mansions to quaint Creole cottages, the Port City’s architecture is full of character. Jim Frazier’s book, “The Majesty of Mobile, ” delves into the additions and renovations that each structure has endured since being built in the 1800s. It also provides a glimpse into the lives of its owners. As MB contributor John S. Sledge writes in his foreword of the book, “Indeed, whether you are Olde Mobile or a tourist from Honolulu, Hoboken, Hampshire, Herat, or anywhere else, these pages will surely delight and instruct.”
