Synopses & Reviews
In 1925, the Radford Architectural Company of Chicago published a book of house designs that included a variety of styles and room layouts to fit the requirements of individual families and pocketbooks. Created as an aid to architects, carpenters and builders, the Radford catalogs were also welcomed by future home owners. Included are such houses as the two-bedroom Bixby, a bungalow that would fit on a 50-foot lot; the Coventry, a charming Dutch Colonial with three bedrooms, a sun room, and other accommodations; and the two-story Amity, complete with four bedrooms, den, entry hall, and other features. Invaluable for restoring residences, this handy volume will also appeal to owners of houses constructed in the 1920s and to anyone who loves fine, old buildings. Unabridged republication of Home Builders' Red Book,
originally published by Radford, 1925. Index. 189 black-and-white illustrations.
