The architecture of the Edwardian period and of the 1920s and 1930s is of growing interest to a new generation of architects and historians. The career of W.D. Caroe spanned the whole of this era, beginning in the 1880s and continuing until the eve of World War II. His practice was wide-ranging extending to the design of furniture and metal-work, sculpture and embroidery and his projects are dispersed throughout England, Wales, the Isle of Man, Scandanavia, the Near East, Southern Europe and North America. This book is intended to be a brief outline of the influences that shaped his career and to provide a guide to some of his best work. The first section of the book examines his early life and pupillage first under Edmund Kirby, then with John L. Pearson, and his place in the architectural world of the 1890s and thereafter. His role as architect to the Ecclesiastical Commissioners, his office establishment and methods of working are discussed. His designs for new churches and secular buildings of all types and his many extensions and alterations to historic churches are described in chronological order. His contribution to the conservation of historic buildings and his projects in five English and Welsh cathedrals are examined, with his work in Wales receiving a more detailed analysis. The final chapter ranges over Caroe's achievements in designs for woodcarving, stone sculpture, embroideries, base and precious metals, monuments and memorials. The author uses many sources of information including card indexes, sketchbooks, correspondence and rolls of drawings retained by the Caroe family to create an overview of the life and work of W.D. Caroe.
