Originally published in 1973, Semi-Detached London looks at the great suburban expansion of London between the two world wars. The book covers all aspects of urban history, presenting an authoritative and balanced account of the Great Suburban Age, and the final uninhibited forty years before the Green Belt and Development Plan. The roles of the speculative builder, the estate developer and the local authorities receive careful attention and the author’s special knowledge of London’s transport systems ensures that the leading part they played is fully developed. Students of social, urban and transport history will find this book a valuable source of reference.

Class, Culture and Suburban Anxieties in the Victorian Era

Author: Lara Baker Whelan

In this study, Whelan demonstrates the way in which representations of the Victorian suburb in mid- to late-nineteenth century British writing occasioned a literary sub-genre unique to this period that attempted to reassure readers that the suburb was a place where outsiders could be controlled and where middle-class values could be enforced. In particular, Whelan draws attention to the discourse of the suburb as a space of cultural contention in an attempt to illuminate a facet of class history that has often been ignored, overgeneralized, or misunderstood. At the same time, she recontextualizes Victorian fiction for modern readers in light of middle-class suburban anxieties.

Excerpt from Suburban Homes of London: A Residential Guide to Favourite London Localities, Their Society, Celebrities, and Associations, With Notes on Their Rental, Rates and House Accommodation In the accounts which are here combined of favourite London localities, their society, celebrities, and associa tions, the authors and the editor have endeavoured to present what the cultivated and sagacious letter-writer ex pressed a desire to have. Other features have been added which, it is hoped, will make the volume practically useful as well as generally attractive. Most of the busy London men of our day have no time to spare for the study of the numerous excellent topographical works which exist. Yet they like to know something of their local history, and the anecdotes relat ing to the spots where they or their friends reside. Especially when any change of residence is contemplated does a cheap convenient volume which affords this kind of information become doubly interesting. An agreeable combination of antiquarian lore, with a bird's.eye view of the modern residential features, will often narrow the search which bewilders even an experienced householder when circumstances compel him to take a fresh outlook.

Interior Design and Identity

Author: Susie McKellar

Publisher: Manchester University Press

This chronologically arranged set of case studies looks at how interior design has constantly redefined itself as a manifestation of culture, from the eighteenth-century to the present day. The book looks at the amateur activities of female "home makers" in search of creative outlets and married couples seeking to modernize their homes as well as the contributions of early professional (female) "interior decorators," and later, (male) "interior designers." It also considers the more anonymous role of commercial enterprises, such as hairdressing salons, cruise ships or modern offices. Issues relating to interiority, gender, and the relationship of the public sphere are also considered opening up a new level of design historical enquiry.
