Top Customer Reviews
This book records in the selections of buildings that have been listed the story of how England built the Welfare State with its new schools and university buildings, public housing and community facilities. Many of these buildings explored new ways of living, teaching or working in addition to innovations in construction or materials. It is an important record of a tumultuous time of great change.
On the whole though, highly recommended. Elain Harwood's guide to Nottinghamshire is very good too.
