In the Victorian Style by Randolph Delehanty

Book Description

San Francisco is famous for its distinctive and well-preserved Victorian architecture. Victorian architectural historian and longtime SF resident Randolph Delehanty and photographer Richard Sexton provide a pictorial and historical overview of this timeless look. "In The Victorian Style" traces the development of Victorian architecture-influenced by both aesthetic trends and new advances in building technology-as well as the history of the city's street plan development, building trends, and parks. The book also offers a rare tour of the traditional Victorian interior, room by room, including not only grand halls, parlours, and dining rooms, but also rarely seen details such as kitchens, pantries, and bathrooms. With over 150 color photographs, this informative historical guide is a must for tourists and Victorian lovers, as well as architects, designers, and decorators.
