Australian Houses Of The Forties & Fifties

Australian Houses Of The Forties & Fifties by Peter Cuffley

01 / 08 / 2009

These are the houses that were built when the 'baby boomers' were growing up.

When post war austerity gave way to a new era of prosperity, whole streets sprang up around the suburbs of Australia. The classic triple-fronted brick veneer is one of the best-known styles of this era. Once derided, today's homebuyers are realising that a well-built house from this era can provide an attractive, comfortable and realistically priced home.

In this long-awaited reprint of this classic book, expert author Peter Cuffley looks at the great diversity of domestic architecture dating from the forties and fifties -- from the humble post-war austerity bungalow through to the cottage-style propounded by Edna Walling and the exciting innovations of such architects as Robin Boyd, Peter McIntyre, Harry Seidler and Frederick Romberg.

Taking up where Peter Cuffley's companion piece, 'Australian Houses of the Twenties & Thirties' -- also reprinted for the new generation -- leaves off, stunning contemporary photographs combined with lively, informative text bring these innocent times nostalgically to life.
