This illustrated lecture by Janet W. Foster will focus on domestic architecture in the era of Queen Victoria. 

It will also explain why calling a building “Victorian” doesn’t help describe what it looks like, or even when it was built. The many architectural expressions of the period from about 1840 to 1900 will be touched upon, including the style called Queen Anne. Local examples will be used occasionally, but be prepared for an exciting, fast-paced survey of buildings from across the United States.
