Excerpt from Craftsman Bungalows: Editione De Luxe; A Collection of the Latest Designs Dedicated to the Lover of a Convenient Home Zzo - The light and cheerful aspect of this bungalow appeals to old and young couples alike. There is a cozy old-fashionedness about the exterior that catches the more sedate, while the wealth of light and sunshine from the multitude of windows unites with the warm glow of two fireplaces to make the interior most pleasant and attractive to the young and gay. It is a cheerful little house with a homey arrangement and porch effects. The rough-sawed, dark-stained siding, the combination windows and other bungalow fea tures are here prominent. The den makes a fine cozy corner for bride and groom or a comfortable library for the elderly. A huge settee against the wall near the living room hearth takes one back to forefather days. The two bedrooms and bath are en suite, both rooms carrying ample closet space. With a variety of old - time, flowers and shrubs to soften the craggy brick and other rustic exterior points the house forms within and without a homelike place in which to either start or finish married life.

William Morris's dictum "Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful" found brilliant expression in the fireplaces of early-twentieth-century American bungalows. Providing heat, ambience, and a living room focal point (before the advent of television), fireplaces were among the most practical--and visually striking--features of bungalow interiors. By Paul Duchscherer and Douglas Keister.

Vitruvius Scoticus

Plans, Elevations, and Sections of Public Buildings, Noblemen's and Gentlemen's Houses in Scotland

Author: William Adam

Publisher: Courier Corporation

Page: 256

This classic portfolio uses elevations, floor plans, and other line drawings by Scotland's first great classical architect to document the high Scottish style of the eighteenth century. It was assembled by William Adam (1689–1748), whose sons were the developers of the "Adam style," and published posthumously in 1812. The elder Adam designed, extended, and remodeled numerous country homes and undertook many public contracts. Vitruvius Scoticus's 160 plates include 100 of his own designs. Unlike the Vitruvius Britannicus books, this volume features plans for many smaller buildings that served as models for American builders and architects of the nineteenth century. Its engravings include images of such stately homes as Mavisbank House, Haddo House, and Fasque House; Hamilton Palace, one of the nation's grandest homes, and Holyrood Palace, the official residence of the monarch in Scotland; and a series of bridges at Inveraray in the county of Argyll. Never before available in an affordable edition, this volume is an essential reference for architectural historians and students. It includes an Introduction and Notes to the Plates by James Simpson.

Material Dreams

Southern California through the 1920s

Author: Kevin Starr

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 0199923272

Category: History

Page: 496

View: 4806

Kevin Starr is the foremost chronicler of the California dream and indeed one of the finest narrative historians writing today on any subject. The first two installments of his monumental cultural history, "Americans and the California Dream," have been hailed as "mature, well-proportioned and marvelously diverse (and diverting)" (The New York Times Book Review) and "rich in details and alive with interesting, and sometimes incredible people" (Los Angeles Times). Now, in Material Dreams, Starr turns to one of the most vibrant decades in the Golden State's history, the 1920s, when some two million Americans migrated to California, the vast majority settling in or around Los Angeles. In a lively and eminently readable narrative, Starr reveals how Los Angeles arose almost defiantly on a site lacking many of the advantages required for urban development, creating itself out of sheer will, the Great Gatsby of American cities. He describes how William Ellsworth Smyth, the Peter the Hermit of the Irrigation Crusade, the self-educated, Irish engineer William Mulholland (who built the main aquaducts to Los Angeles), and George Chaffey (who diverted the Colorado River, transforming desert into the lush Imperial Valley) brought life-supporting water to the arid South. He examines the discovery of oil, the boosters and land developers, the evangelists (such as Bob Shuler, the Methodist Savanarola of Los Angeles, and Aimee Semple McPherson), and countless other colorful figures of the period. There are also fascinating sections on the city's architecture the impact of the automobile on city planning, the Hollywood film community, the L.A. literati, and much more. By the end of the decade, Los Angeles had tripled in population and become the fifth largest city in the nation. In Material Dreams, Starr captures this explosive growth in a narrative tour de force that combines wide-ranging scholarship with captivating prose.
