Originally published in 1973, Semi-Detached London looks at the great suburban expansion of London between the two world wars. The book covers all aspects of urban history, presenting an authoritative and balanced account of the Great Suburban Age, and the final uninhibited forty years before the Green Belt and Development Plan. The roles of the speculative builder, the estate developer and the local authorities receive careful attention and the author’s special knowledge of London’s transport systems ensures that the leading part they played is fully developed. Students of social, urban and transport history will find this book a valuable source of reference.
