Architects include Holden, Philip Tilden, Clough Williams Ellis, Guy Dawber and many others. Lots of examples of contemporary houses beautifully photographed by Yerbury. A fascinating period survey. Yerbury was librarian at the Architectural Association at the time but in parallel had a second career as an architectural photographer – during the 1920s and early 30s he travelled extensively throughout Europe, photographing whatever was new thus influencing modernist European tradition in the UK. This study in which he teamed up with C H James surveys the whole gambit of contemporary British House Designs.
