I knew that I would be reading about and viewing mansions and property that have been lost, but it still saddens me deeply to know that they are gone. I found myself searching for places that may have been saved and there are a few where a building or a room have been preserved and re-located in Belcourt Castle or elsewhere, but not to the extent that I'd wished for.
I read alot of interior design magazines where they are adding on or changing an old home, they talk about not being able to find a particular type of wood - and suggest using a stain that makes your wood look like it. When I read this - I think again about the terrible shame of busting down elegant well built homes that DID contain real chestnut or mahogany and lots of it.
thank you for publishing a book that lets me dream a bit of what it must have been like to walk through some of those halls or actually reside in such splendor.
The text is brief, but interesting. Architectural styles include colonial, Victorian, Georgian, stick & shingle, Beaux Arts....you name it. The overall effect has an almost melancholy quality to it. The people are dead. The houses are gone. But this delightful little book, a good cup of coffee, and your imagination.....can bring them all back.
If your interests lie in the in this historical era, a great book to invest your reading time.
