Victorian architectural historian and longtime SF resident Randolph Delehanty and photographer Richard Sexton provide a pictorial and historical overview of this timeless look. San Francisco is famous for its distinctive and well-preserved Victorian architecture. Resource No. 495. Late Victorian Interiors and Interior Details.

Extravagantly illustrated with scores of full-color photographs and line drawings, In the Victorian Style is not only the definitive sourcebook for architects, designers, and owners of Victorians everywhere, but a compelling look at the historical and cultural climate that shaped this eloquent architectural style that is still very much a part of our daily lives.

This book offers wonderful information, but it was lacking in the photograph area. With the victorian style you can write about it all you want, but without the photos it becomes quite flat. The Victorian era gave us such intricate embellishment it is hard for the mind to imagine from just writings. When I am reading about this style my eyes want to see it as well. I took a star away because of this. If you want to overdose on photos from this beautiful and creative era of architecture I suggest the Painted Ladies series of books they are absolutely gorgeous and are a collection of beautiful houses across America not just from one area.

This book is AMAZING. As a San Francisco history / real estate / city planning buff, I like to search for information regarding the original surveys of the land and how the street plans came to be. I also like to know how land was sold and how the Victorian row house came to be so popular in San Francisco. It's also useful to know why the floor plans were designed the way they were, given how Victorian-era families lived. It's very difficult to find information like this online because a lot of it isn't accurate and certainly does not have images. This book has all of this and more. It is literally my ideal book, I am so glad I bought one. Getting to know how the land in San Francisco was divided up, the measurements (Spanish 'vara'), architecture, interior design, everything is absolutely thorough and amazing. I commend the author for putting this masterpiece together.
My only minor criticism is that the pictures in a couple of the sections are very dated. This doesn't detract from the core of the subjectmatter in any way, but none of the cars on the street are newer than about 1985 and things have changed a lot in San Francisco since then. It would be nice to see how even more of these historic homes have been restored to their original splendor.

One incredibly beautiful book on the beauty of Victorians in San Francisco. Having lived up there for 7 years, I fell in love with these houses and actually going to parties and getting to view the insides of these houses was an extra treat for me. The book explains in excellent detail the history, the decay, and the revival of these beauties. These houses will never lose their beauty, their incredible floor plans and the to see the photos used in this book will take you there. Enjoy the ride.
