A very interesting read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The 1930s House Explained (England's Living History) (Paperback)
I wanted to know a bit more about the house I live in, and this short book was packed with information. After skimming through it, I found myself looking at the house in a whole new light. From the shape of the porch to the curve of the bottom stair, many features of the house are explained with fascinating relation to social history. This really is a book that "explains" the house; where others just describe the characteristics of 1930s houses, this one opens your eyes to the reasons why 1930s houses were built the way they were.
