Publisher's description: In the process of modernization, many North American cities have razed their residential neighborhoods to make way for apartment buildings, condominiums, and cookie-cutter cul de sacs. Such is not the case in Victoria, BC, an idyllic city with more than 150 years of architectural history lining its picturesque streets. Take a walk through the city's charming neighborhoods and discover a continuum of styles, from pioneer log, through Gothic, Edwardian, Arts and Crafts, and Moderne styles, right up to glass and steel. Learn from the sturdy brick, dormer windows, and sweeping verandas the evolution of Victoria's architecture, culture and economy. With more than 100 photographs of Victoria's most glorious homes, this collection provides basic information for each phase of the city's architectural timeline, and delves into the history of the homes, the architects who built them, and the details that make them uniquely Victorian. And if the photographs aren't enough, author Nick Russell provides street addresses for every residence, so readers can see these gorgeous relics of decades past from their own point of view.
