Omschrijving

For Gwendolyn Wright,the houses of America are the diaries of the American people.

Why did plantation owners build uniform cabins for their slaves? Why were all the walls in nineteenth-century tenements painted white? Why did the parlor suddenly disappear from middle-class houses at the turn of the century?
