Suburban Manors of Late Nineteenth-Century Philadelphia

A listing ordered by architect and date, with houses for which no architect is given at the bottom.

The house/estate names, in capitals as given on the photogarphs, are linked to the images, which should open in a second window. The owner names are linked to a set of rough notes on each, with some specifics gathered on the owner, location, and construction history.

One may also explore the same set of images by location.
