Few reference books assist in the restoration of campground cottages, but this new photo archive shows existing architectural details in the historic district of Oak Bluffs and Marthas Vineyard, Massachusetts. These ornate Victorian cottages are commonly known as the Painted Ladies. More than six hundred color images display the wide variety of corbels and gingerbread found on these small tent like cottages. Study the intricate patterns carpenters used to create the "gingerbread" look, with little material and equipment. Restorers of old homes, preservationists, students of architecture, and admirers of Victorian-style will find this a valuable resource and use these photos to restore, preserve, or recreate the embellishments.
