This paper analyzes the values embodied in the bungalow house, abundantly present in Vancouver, mostly erected between 1945 and 1960. It loos at the precursor of this bungalow was the California bungalow, which achieved massive popularity a few decades earlier - even to the point that there were mail order bungalows available.

From the Paper:

"The bungalow, popularized in the mid-twentieth century, is still abundant in many areas of Vancouver. Much as the townhouse now offers affordable, space-efficient housing, the bungalow also espoused these values in the form of a detached dwelling. These houses were simple and inexpensive to build, unpretentious, and built for comfort and efficiency - in short, they were just what was needed to accommodate the proliferation of young families and immigrants in the era following the Second World War."
