THE beginning of the present century saw the birth of the steel frame structure as a modern method of construction in place of buildings of very thick walls when many storeys had to be carried. This is not to say that there were not in America previous to this date some examples of this construction, but generally speaking they were not legal in this country. Oscar Faber
