    Excellent account of how the UK lost some of its best Victorian buildings This was largely down to prejudice from the great and the good who thought they had a monopoly on what constituted good taste and in a particularly destructive period after the second world war set about to rob ordinary people of a large chunk of their cultural heritage The Luftwaffe’s role is secondary The vast majority of the buildings that replaced the Victorian structures documented here were of little architectural merit and were themselves often demolished after a few decades thus making the original loss even pointless The book is organised around different types of building and superbly illustrated Stamp writes extremely well and gives the villains in this dk waving architects greedy developers local government central government British Rail the Church of England an elouent thrashing


  2. Helen Birkbeck Helen Birkbeck says:

    Sad account of the casual and often pointless destruction of so many interesting and characterful buildings though the author's bias does get a little wearing and the book has uite a few editorial errors Why list things if you're still able to knock them down? It's understandable but a pity that the photos are in black and white as they don't show the true glory of the buildings


  3. Gareth Evans Gareth Evans says:

    This could have been so very dull but it really wasn't It rattled a long at a good pace Well designed the text and the pictures always on the same page made for comfortable and speedy reading Of course Stamp probably overdoes the it's a great shame that such and such a building was demolished just as all advocates for particular architectural styles and ages do However it has certainly given me a better appreciation of Victorian architecture in general and made me view the isolated churches and other buildings on the Manchester skyline in a different light Overall a fast interesting and charming read
