The new publication of This Old House has presented the buildings in a context of the people and events of the city. This creates the fabric into which the buildings are woven. This Old House presents the buildings of Victoria in a way which is interesting and accessible to all of us who are or have been Victorians.
- Melinda L. Seyler, May 2004

Painstakingly, meticulously catalogued – an amazing encyclopedia of historical Information.
- Ken Henderson

The research, layout, writing and overall 'literary fullness' of the text made it a delight to read. In particular, I appreciated the extended description of the architecture, which includes a social history of each house, information on the architect, builder, original owner, and subsequent residents of note (either renter or owner). - Christopher Lefler, August 2004
