Between the Past and the Present

Nostalgia and the Cinema of Stick and Shingle Style Architecture

(p.157) Four Between the Past and the Present
Spectacle of Property

John David Rhodes

University of Minnesota Press

Explores in some detail the history and historiography of what architectural historian Vincent Scully has famously nominated as stick and shingle style architecture. These styles name the large, rambling wooden houses built in the late nineteenth-century whose histories are entangled with that of the colonial revival and Queen Anne styles. Nostalgia is the animating force of these architectural styles, as it is for the films that make significant use of this architecture: Meet Me in St. Louis (Vincente Minnelli,1944), Psycho, and Grey Gardens.
