Photographs and descriptions of some of the finest homes in England, selected from family albums by a photographer of British homes, record the lifestyles of a bygone era of wealth and stately grandeur
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
English country houses can in many ways claim to be the actual birthplace of photography in England, for here the class that could afford to dabble in the new art form was able to create for history a record of its grand dwellings and lifestyles. The well-known houses in this study no longer function as family homes but are a part of the National Trust. This pictorial history of the homes and the various families that dwelled in them shows servants as well as famous guests and everyday scenes as well as more imposing interiors and exteriors. Of great interest to anyone concerned with England's architecture, history, or way of life.
