Fred Rowntree: Architect

Fred Rowntree was born in Scarborough, Yorkshire, in 1860, attended Bootham School and was articled to C A Bury, a local architect. After working as an assistant to Edward Burgess of Leicester he formed a partnership with Charles Edeson of Scarborough. In 1890 he joined Glasgow architect Malcolm Stark, working with him for ten years before moving to London.

His early work was typical of its age, ranging from neo-Gothic to neo-classical and Victorian domestic, but from the mid-nineties, with the creation of Trinity Church, Bridge of Allan, his style became more and more influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement.

The book comprises a short biography of Rowntree followed by historical descriptions of his known buildings. There are 350 illustrations.
