    1. c1993 Really interesting with lots of illustrations I have already put the new knowledge to the test by walking around the village As I thought, many of the houses in my area were built between the wars apart from the ghastly ubiquitous sixties builds which I, unfortunately, live in This book doesn t cover anything past 1960 which is probably just as well The standard double bay of an inter war semi often incorporated stained glass.
