Title: The Development and Use of Cast Stone
Author(s): L.A. Falco
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 497-500
Abstract:The avowed purpose of the American Concrete Institute is "to provide a comradeship in finding the best ways to do concrete work of all kinds, and in spreading that knowledge." It might be presumed then that only strictly technical papers would have a place on the program of the convention, but it seems to me that at the opening of this session on cast stone we would do well to look back for a few minutes on the developments which have made cast stone a subject worthy of one entire session of the American Concrete Institute convention. Cast stone is one of the most refined forms of concrete. Its very nature as a medium of architectural expression demands that we pause a moment to consider whither we have come and whither we are going. It is, therefore, the purpose of the paper briefly to outline to you the developments and use of cast stone-its past achievements and future possibilities.
