This fascinating volume explores the American bungalow as an art form and as a document reflecting middle-class life in its era. Casual and informal, the bungalow mirrored the society that produced it, and (like that society) displayed no predominant architectural ancestry. It was conceived specifically for the contented middle class, and these folks wanted a house adequate for the comforts of a small family, usually situated on a lot of modest proportions, affording an overall effect of homeliness and available at a price the average citizen could afford.
