Overview
-

Many Edwardian houses were influenced by the romantic styles of Art Nouveau and the Arts and Crafts Movements. It was an age of mass production, but the pride in these homes shown by their builders is still evidenced by the dates of construction and the rural names given to them, often seen above the front door or carefully chiseled onto a plaque below the roof.

This book focuses on the original exterior and interior features that would have been added by the builder but which may since have been replaced or removed. They include sash and casement windows, colored glass, door plates and handles, letter boxes, porches, balconies, rainwater hoppers, fireplaces, stairs, wall moldings and fitted cupboards.

A strong pride of ownership remains with today's owners. For anyone restoring features in their own Edwardian home, or who simply enjoys an admiration of period properties, then this book will be an invaluable guide.
