London's historic houses and domestic interiors have suffered greater loss and change than most of their provincial counterparts due to political and social change, war, and a tradition of continuous rebuilding. The photographic archive accumulated over the past century by the magazine Country Life forms a remarkable and evocative record of houses as they were. Includes interiors of Norfolk House, Pomfret Castle, Robert Adam's Home House occupied by Samuel Courtauld and his celebrated collection of Impressionist masterpieces; the Dorchester House, photographed shortly before they were swept away.
