This is a history of architecture in Bermuda. A key element in the heritage of the island, the evolution of Hamilton Parish's architectural style is here closely examined over nearly two centuries, complete with detailed maps and photographs. The historical and environmental context is also taken into account, providing valuable information on the origin of the birth of some styles. The book takes us far into the island's maritime past, giving out the personal histories of some of the sea captains and other personalities who had these houses built. The book is an endeavor "to preserve buildings, lands, artefacts and places of beauty or historical interest and to promote their appreciation."
Lavishly illustrated in B&W with photographs, drawings, maps and plans. Includes four appendices with Fairview field notes (a construction plan), a 1827 will of Peter Burchall, an inventory of Captain Thomas Outerbridge, and an inventory of Mr Samuel Trott. Additionally includes source notes, and a glossary of regional and architectural terms and materials.
