The Edwardian House: The Middle-class Home in Britain, 1880-1914
This book covers the most prolific house-building period in British history, resulting in the growth of the leafy middle-class suburb. With the first part of the book looking at Edwardian society and the general background to the design of Edwardian houses, the second part looks in more detail at the enormous range of decorative fittings available and the cultural, technical and economic reasons behind the design choices that were made.
