The Victorian house comes in all shapes, sizes and materials. The legacy of this hugely influential era can be found in every region of England, from the majestic rows of gleaming white terraces in West London to the grid of red-brick houses in northern mill towns. Using his own drawings, diagrams and photographs, the author, Trevor Yorke, explains, in an easy to understand manner, all aspects of the Victorian house and provides a definitive guide for those who are renovating, tracing the history of their own house or are simply interested in this notable period. The book provides a background to different phases of design throughout the Victorian age from the 1830s to the early 1900s. Various areas are considered in detail, including the layout and use of rooms; fixtures and fittings; sources of heat and lighting, domestic machinery such as kitchen ranges and laundry equipment; and gardens and outbuildings. Also included is a quick reference guide with notes on dating houses, recommended books, places to visit and a glossary of the less familiar architectural terms.
