Summary:
Materials relate primarily to the design and construction of residential buildings. The bulk of the material dates from the latter part of the 19th century, with materials created both in the United States and foreign countries. While some of the materials were created by architects, a substantial amount comes from manufacturers of pre-cut, prefabricated and/or portable buildings and dwellings. This series is rich in images of domestic architecture covering a century of design, especially in the oversize materials. Detailed plans, along with exterior and interior images, are presented and often accompanied by glowing texts attesting to their charm and livability. A small group of publications relating to architecture is also included.
