The proportions of villas and cottages

Mr Hampton delivered his eighth lecture on drawing in the vestry room of All Saints yesterday evening, the attendance being quite as large as on former occasions. The subject of last night’s lecture was the proportions of villas and cottages and the lecturer in a very comprehensive and lucid manner described the various details of the architecture met with in New Zealand scenery. The diagram illustrations were also interesting and assisted the listeners in forming correct ideas of the proportions referred to in the lecture and how by a few simple rules an eye-sore may be converted into a pleasing feature of landscape. Mr Hampton's next lecture will be on prospectives.
