Presents the story of the peculiarly British architectural compromise: the semi-detached house. Designed to appeal to a growing middle class, its history is the history of suburbia. This book shows how the roots of the semi go back to aristocratic inventions in the 17th century, and started to take off in the 19th, with a rich profusion of styles.
