Australian Houses of the Forties and Fifties
This is an illustrated study of the houses which were being built when the Australian baby boom generation was growing up. When post-war austerity gave way to a new era of prosperity and immigration, whole streets sprang up around the suburbs of Australia. In this nostalgic book, Peter Chuffley tooks at the great diversity of domestic architecture and decorative styles dating from the 1940s and 1950s - from the humble austerity bungalow through to Edna Walling's cottage styles, and the exciting innovations of architects such as Robin Boyd, Peter McIntyre, Harry Seidler and Frederick Romberg.
