The late Victorian suburban villa, in its leafy setting, illustrates some fascinating aspects of the social history as well as the architecture of Leicester. Here we meet the local businessmen who commissioned these impressive houses, along with the architects and builders who helped to give Leicester's middle class suburbs their special character. The book also explores such other important aspects as the suburban garden, and the significance of local geology in determining the choice of building materials and sites.
