Group of Swiss Houses
"The third class of timber buildings which has to be described is the so-called Swiss-Cottage style [shown here]. This class belongs exclusively to the country in contradistinction to the town. It is only lately that its application has been extended to other purposes, as for example, (and in combination with framed half-timbered construction) to railway stations, &c."
