Pictures from The Growth of the English House, A Short History of its Architectural Development from 100 to 1800, by J. Alfred Gotch, F.S.A., F.R.I.B.A., London, N.T. Batsford, 1909.

Any photographs here I believe to be out of copyright, since Alfred Gotch died in 1942, more than 50 years ago, and copyright expired before 1995, and Alfred Gotch was (obviously) not alive in 1996 in order to obtain “revived” copyright.

The text itself was still copyrighted until the end of 2012.
