About The Book
Both a remarkable photographic record of a vanished landscape of 19th-century architecture, and an angry polemic against the cavalier destruction of hundreds of grand buildings, this is the latest record of magnificent buildings from previous centuries that for a variety of reasonsbut above all cavalier demolition by 20th-century planners devoted to the cause of modernismare now no more, and exist only in heartbreakingly poignant photographs. This latest chronicles an astonishing and depressing array of the finest Victorian architecture all sacrificed to the wrecking ball, from the Euston Arch to Preston Town Hall, from a great country house like Trentham in Staffordshire to a fine Victorian church like St. Jude’s in London’s Red Lion Square. Here are public baths, railway termini and hotels, town houses, factories, banks, law courtsall buildings that, if threatened today, would soon see calls for restoration. But it’s too latephotographs are all we have left. Gavin Stamp’s indignant and scholarly text looks back at the circumstances of their loss, and analyzes the 20th-century mind set that could hold so many magnificent buildings in such little regard.
