A century ago, Silvanus Trevail needed no introduction. President of the Society of Architects and Mayor of Truro, he was as famous for his radical politics as for his 300 schools, churches, libraries and housing developments. Then, in 1903, he put a revolver to his head, ending his brilliant career at 52. With over 150 colour photographs and a complete catalogue of his buildings, this book is the first to chart his life and achievements.
