From cabins to castles, Victoria has a truly amazing collection of beautiful homes. But what makes one house a heritage building, and another one bulldozer bait?
Glorious Victorians celebrates buildings that reflect changing architectural fashions that tell a story about the prosperity of British Columbia's capital city. What is Queen Anne style? Did a premier live here? Who were the great architects? Do some values trump others? (cost of construction, age, building materials, owners?) What important buildings have been lost over the years? And what will tomorrow's heritage buildings look like?
Heritage researcher, writer and photographer Nick Russell puts all this together to make an informative and entertaining read, capturing the essence of Victoria for both those who love to live in the city, and those who love to visit.
