Stylish houses dating from the twenties and thirties can be found throughout Australia's older suburbs -- reminders of the nationwide housing boom that followed World War 1. Today these charming houses are perceived as a valuable part of Australia's history.
In this long-awaited reprint of the 1989 classic, expert author Peter Cuffley examines these interwar houses in all their many manifestations -- from the cosy Californian Bungalow to the Modern Art Deco house of the 1930s.
Lavishly illustrated and beautifully written, 'Australian Houses of the Twenties & Thirties', like its companion 'Australian Houses of the Forties & Fifties' which has also been reprinted for the new generation, is both a valuable companion for people who own or wish to renovate a house from this era, and an evocative account of Australian cultural history and domestic architecture.
