Interior Design - Architectural Period Photos

  • Archetictural Period photos and resources

    The web pages here include images and descriptions of the dominant architectural styles found throughout the United States and Canada. Some pages have more photos than others, simply due to the availability of photos in my collection and my opportunities to travel. My original intent was to develop these pages for a course I teach, PL 303 (Design and Preservation) at Northern Arizona University.

  • Victorian Resources Online:

    This index includes lengthy bibliographies as well as small projects.  The undertakings of large research institutions are listed side-by-side with the efforts of individual scholars.  I have not, for the most part, catalogued individual electronic texts, as several of the sites listed below do a fine job of providing author-listings.  While a few of the following Web pages are not strictly scholarly, I have listed them because they contain online resources such as image collections which can be of great convenience to Victorianists.  I have also noted their limitations. 


    Please note, however, that links may be out of date as this list is no longer actively maintained.
