About this item
A pioneering survey, very detailed and well-illustrated. London grew massively outwards between late Victorian times and World War II. The inter-war years saw the most rapid developments. Jackson describes many estate developments, ranging from exemplary model villages like Hampstead Garden Suburb to the worst excesses of speculative builders.
Students of social, urban and transport history will find this book a valuable source of reference.
A very good clean copy; previous owner's name is written on the front endpaper, otherwise no marks or notes.Illustrated throughout with photographs, maps and graphs.
- Jackson, A. A. (Alan Arthur), 1922-
