Summary
"The Institute of British Architects was established in 1834 with the published aim of establishing 'uniformity' in the profession, yet, for the each of the eight architects included in this book, architectural practice involved a different set of principles and activities. Together they provide a revealing picture of the profession in this seminal period of its development. In this book essays examine early and mid-Victorian metropolitan architects like Henry Roberts (1803-76) and Bassett Keeling (1837-86); provincial men such as William Culshaw (1807-74) and Henry Sumners (1825-95) who played a central position in the rebuilding of Victorian Liverpool, and William Hill (1827-89) from Leeds. SPAB and Arts and Crafts principles are represented by Edward Prior (1852-1932) and Hugh Thackeray Turner (1853-1937), while Harold Peto (1854-1933) even provided gardens for Mediterranean villas plus first class apartments for several liners"--
