Description

The focus of this handsome photographic study is sawn-wood ornamentation — the "gingerbread" of Victorian houses. The brilliance and variability of these sculptures are here preserved in 186 sharp, detailed photographs of handsawed architectural embellishments found on exteriors of houses constructed between 1820 and 1910. Introduction. Captions.
