(en) Vintage photography Albert Levy. Architectural photography

This time Albert Levy leaves New York in search of new architectures to photograph.
His steps led him to Boston where he made this picture of the house of Mr. Washburn.I could not get information about the owner. About " Allen & Kenway" architects I have located several buildings designed by them but yet I failed to get a biographical data of them.

This picture is included in the files of the Collection Halic the Art Institute of Chicago as seen in the following link Halic.
Albert Levy conducted an extensive series of photographs of architecture in the U.S. between 1875-1885. These photos were gathered in so-called "Albert Levy's Photographic Series of Modern American Architecture".
Several albums of these series are in the best American museums such as the Metropolitan, Getty, Library of Congress, Avery Library.
The photographic catalog of the photographs made by Albert Levy can be found in the Avery Library and the BNF ( Bibliotheque National de France)
Albert Levy's Photographic Series of Modern American Architecture. Due to these series, Albert Levy is referenced as counterpart for Alinari in the United States (13).

    L’assimilation du régionalisme dans l’architecture balnéaire

    L’apparition du style néo-normand est sans doute la plus précoce mais aussi la plus
      ambiguë du régionalisme. D’après Claude Mignot, le créateur du type de la villa néo-normande
    semble être l’architecte caennais Jacques Baumier père. Dès 1860, celui-ci bâtit les dépendances de la villa Suzanne de Louis-Léon Paris à Houlgate et, deux ans plus tard, sur la plage de Trouville la Maison normande pour Adolphe Cordier. Elles seront suivies de trois autres réalisations sur les  hauteurs de la même station. Il faut attendre une vingtaine d’années pour voir se répandre la seconde génération de villas sur toute la côte normande, signées par de nombreux architectes comme
    Jacques Baumier fils, Edouard Papinot, Adrien Jory père et fils, E. Mauclerc, G. Pichereau
