Spanish Colonial or Adobe Architecture of California 1800-1850.

Spanish Colonial or Adobe Architecture of California Spanish Colonial or Adobe Architecture of California 1800-1850, by Donald R. Hannaford and Revel Edwards (Architectural Book Publishing Company, Inc., Stamford, Conn., 1990> $22.50), first appeared in 1931. The book's 170 black-and-white photographs and drawings concentrate on houses and ranch buildings in the Sonoma, Monterey, and Santa Barbara areas. The distinctive balconies or verandas and shingled hip or gable roofs of these structures helped inspire the contemporary ranch house, a form popularized by Los Angeles designer Cliff May.
