This is a huge book, measuring 40×28cm (approx. 11×16 inches), and it used not to fit on my scanner. Since then I got a new scanner, a larger one, and I can more easily publish the images. The pictures are out of copyright (published before 1923 in the US, and UK photographs taken before 1957)

Some sample images

312.—Avebury Manor, Wiltshire

The Ancient Cut Box Tree on the South Lawn [$]

Stanton Court: The Centre of West Point

This is a version that I coloured slightly. The photographs in the book are monochrome, so this is just a guess on my part. [$]

Stanton Court: The Centre of West Point

The porch and oriel projections are small, and gable-ended wings stretch forth. [p. xvi]. Nowadays you can stay at Stanton Court Cottages (I think this is the same place; it’s near Broadway, Worcestershire, if so). [more...] [$]

335.—The Great Chamber, Looking North.

“It will be noticed that the ceiling is a reproduction of that in the ballroom at Knole (Fig. 294). The panelling is similar to that in the dining-room below, and all came out of the Quenby attics. It forms a beautiful and subdued background for the interesting pictures and [...] latter there are four pieces, evidently of a set, of fine colour and design and with admirable early seventeenth century borders. Horesemen are hunting lions, tigers, and other animals in forests. With full regard to the old spirit, the floor was made of oak planks of varying widths, but all broad and massive. The room has three bays, of which the great ones over the porches give immense character to the room. That over the entrance door is all window, there being ten lights. It is a delightful vantage ground from which to enjoy the grand western view.” (pp. 293, 294). [more...] [$]

Jacobean Houses in Frankwell, Shrewsbury

These houses were built some time after 1620, so they are after the Tudor period. [$]
