Art at grandma's: the story of houses and homes

"The Story of Houses and Homes" is a Ladybird Achievements Book published in 1963, written by Richard Bowood and illustrated by Robert Ayton. It belongs to my grandmother, an English teacher. I've been fascinated by the illustrations ever since I was little.

It's a children's book that tells the story of houses and homes in England, from the rock shelter of primitive man through the modern apartment buildings. The illustrations are truly amazing! Here are some of my favourites.
