Houses for the Working Classes in Urban Districts

B. T.Batsford 1900

(8) + 32pp text + double page, tipped in frontis and 31 further plans and illustrations. Small folio. Green gilt lettered cloth. Spine and corners slightly slightly rubbed. Green boards a little faded. Internally sound. Comprises 30 typical and revised plans arranged in groups with elevations for each and block plans. Appendices on model housing and by laws for the LCC area. At the time of publication Cranfield and Potter had a London based architectural practice though later went their separate ways, Potter establishing a practice in Sheffield. The designs of both the houses and the book have a feel of the arts and crafts movement. Essentially a pattern book for those involved in trying to relieve the problem of scarcity of housing in London at the turn of the century. Hard to find.
