John and Benjamin Green Architects and Engineers by Peter Bell

9 Просмотры
The Greens were successful businessmen operating at a time when Tyneside was rapidly developing. They have not had as much attention paid to them as the eminent engineers of the era, such as the Stephensons, or architects such as John Dobson. This was a time when the separate professions of architect and engineer were diverging and the Greens provide an example of how architects and engineers operated in the first half of the nineteenth century.
