Over a million homes were built in Britain during the Edwardian period and another four million in the interwar years; most of them are still standing. This book explains why and by whom these properties were built and traces the development of architectural styles and interior decor from English vernacular in the 1900s to the arrival of modernism during the 1930s. Part two looks in detail at the houses' construction and decoration, with chapters devoted to the various elements of a house, from roofs to paint finishes.
