Format: Paperback
I loved this book. Think you know what a bungalow is? Think again. Extremely well-researched and written, the book is a treasure trove of fascinating facts. The social, cultural and architectural story of the British bungalow is explained with wonderful historical photos and floor plans (and a dash of humour), taking you from the bungalow's humble beginnings in Bengal to its glamorous heyday in Britain and its post-war decline. I read it in one rivetted sitting.

Format: Paperback
The expert on beach huts, the seaside holiday, and holiday camps has turned her attention to the humble bungalow, and written another great book on this unsung, but delightful, housing type. And she reveals that bungalows were not only lived in, they have been hotels, tea rooms and even hospitals. In her very readable style Ferry traces the history of the bungalow in this country, from their nineteenth-century origins as artistic retreats designed by architects, to being the bête noir of conservationists complaining of 'bungaloid growth' across the countryside. She entertainingly describes how bungalows went from being the scene of Victorian unconventional goings-on, through the democritization process of plotlands, until they ultimately became a bye-word for respectability. And, as usual with Shire books, it is extensively illustrated with fascinating images. I'm off for a Bohemian weekend in my bungalow as soon as possible.
