Full Description

Folio. 2pp, 4 large folding plans. Publisher’s printed wrappers.

Not much of it, but is this the first official guidance from the British government on how to design housing specifically intended for children? The proposal was to build “cottage homes” to accommodate ten or more children in local authority care, together with a foster-mother. A rare item.
