Tom will discuss the stylistic elements most often associated with the Wallingford bungalow and how the character of these early 20th century houses developed over time with changing tastes and typological innovation. He will also examine elements of other residential styles and related plan types that became popular in the years between the end of the Victorian era and the onset of the Depression. Tom will conclude with same comments on the significance of the bungalow as a contributor to the
architectural character of the Wallingford neighborhood.
