The Illustrated Carpenter and Builder
The Illustrated Carpenter and Builder was a weekly journal aimed at architects, builders, joiners, decorators, painters, plumbers and gas fitters. It reads more like a directory than a journal as it has hundreds of adverts for carpentry and building companies, machinery and tools. It does, however, also contain illustrated articles and features on architectural, decorative and building techniques, for example hanging wallpaper, dovetailing in wood and quantity surveying.
MoDA holds two editions of the journal from 1896 and 1897 (Volumes 39 and 40) and some from 1939.
