    Liverpool Liverpool Corporation 1910

    Ex library with usual stamps and class marks from the Board of Education Library 28pp + fold out birds eye view of the scheme at the end of the booklet and includes extra illustrations showing the Liverpool courts the scheme was to replace and house plans for the new dwellings. Arts and Crafts design influences evident in the illustrations. The scheme was built by the local authority in Liverpool in 1911–12 to improve the housing conditions for dock workers and others in the Vauxhall area, just over half a mile from the River Mersey. Existing terraces of housing and courts of back-to-backs were demolished in order to construct the model housing, which was unusual in that, unlike other model housing of the time, it was built close to existing social amenities and the docks, where many of the tenants were engaged in casual labour. Bevington Street formed part of a much wider scheme of 'slum' clearance in Liverpool, before and after the First World War. Much of the 1910 scheme has now been redeveloped again. This publication was produced to mark the ceremony of laying the foundation stone of the workmen's dwellings. Small 4to Internally very good, some red ink annotations, but the wrappers are very friable and worn although the decoration on the upper wrapper which illustrates some of the houses has survived. Burn was President of the Local Government Board and was a key sponsor in Hampstead Garden Suburb.
