A 1930 illustration from a win­dow hard­ware man­u­fac­turer presents the well-fur­nished sun­porch.

Look out the win­dows to see a spank­ing-new neigh­bor­hood—of com­pat­i­ble dwellings and pic­turesque rooflines, awnings and wel­com­ing door­ways (not garages), street lamps and gen­er­ous side­walks—all on a hu­man scale. “The im­age is al­most a les­son in all the won­der­ful, old-school things no longer avail­able to­day, ex­cept per­haps on Etsy. This pe­riod of in­te­rior de­sign is as­cen­dant, how­ever, so ex­pect re­pro­duc­tions soon.” —Bo Sul­li­van, Bolling & Co.
