Building ordinance of the city of Louisville, Ky.; approved January 14, 1907. Louisville: The Continental Printing Company, Incorporated, pp. 148.

In a neat and handy volume the building ordinance of Louisville, Ky., has been issued, primarily. of course, for general use by the officials of the city, and, secondarily, for the instruction and information of such as are interested in the proper construction of buildings. The provisions of the ordinance are very stringent, and, if followed out to the letter, as it is to be hoped they will be, should put an end to the running up of unsanitary and inflammable firetraps within the city limits. Chief Tyson will rejoice that Louisville is now to be better safe-guarded against fire, so far as concerns the construction of its buildings.
