Architecture was one of Britain’s most important exports in the nineteenth century. We find Victorian Houses in North America (USA as well as Canada), in the Caribbean, in Australia and in South Africa. Styles include shingle, stick, Queen Anne and Federation and for decoration  we have Carpenters’ Gothic and Iron Lace.
