'An impressive selection of archival collections and inclusion of little-known historic material testify to the principal author's dedication, patience and research acumen' -- Ayla Lepine 'This long-awaited exposition is the most comprehensive account of Paley & Austin to date, and will remain the standard work of reference for many decades. It is a complex story, eloquently unravelled' -- Julian Litten 'Published by English Heritage, the book's thoroughness and detail make it a remarkable account of how one firm and its principals influenced the architectural landscape of the North West, giving an interesting insight into Victorian history and legacy.' -- Sian Peters This is the first serious account of one of the greatest of all Northern architectural practices.
