Postwar Cape Cod - (War or G.I. Home)

When we speak about domestic architectural style, we don't usually think about the bungalows many of us grew up in the suburban areas around cities. These homes were built as track developments in the 50's and 60's to house returning veterans and a working middle class that could now afford larger homes. The greatest quality of this style of house is its ability to adapt and adopt other house styles. Over the last 50 years postwar homes have been the canvas for many renovations.

Other postwar styles: Ranch, Split-level, Bi-level

Hello Victoria (comment posted 22nd August) I do hope you have pesverered with this novel .or at least beyond page 20! You will see many comments reflecting the common experience of attempting this book and not succeeding with it, then returning to it later (sometimes many years later) and finding it an entirely different experience. As a student many years ago I found Woolf's style very hard to grasp and I felt the characters were elusive, difficult to pin down. Over 30 years later I was able to bring much more experience to my reading and found so many echoes in the book about the relationships within families indeed some of the characters positively leapt off the page. Gillian Beer's comments are very helpful ..we can all think of parent/child relationships, even not necessarily our own, and bring some response to the dynamics between Mr & Mrs Ramsay and their children. Good luck with your reading! I do hope you will join us for some of the events at the festival, and we would love to hear your comments. — Alan
