A well-designed brochure issued to advertise the services of this firm of house builders based in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. The firm had built up an extensive business in the Home Counties during the inter-war period, constructing small detached houses for middle-class clients at prices made more affordable by standardisation of the building materials involved. The brochure illustrates a wide selection of the houses involved. We have not previously seen or handled a copy of this publication.
