Suburban Homes for Sale

One of the first of its kind, Suburban Homes, a book containing exterior views and floor plans, drawn to a scale, of cottages in 1878 can be seen in this photograph. At this time, these advertisements were used as a pattern book to showcase the types of cottages that were available. This form of marketing soon took hold and was preceded by books such as The Building Age and American Homes and Gardens in the early 1900s and remnants can still be seen in today’s real estate practices.
