From the reference box #135


#135 - The County of London Plan, published by Penguin Books in 1945. This lovely little booklet is packed full of beautifully graphic maps (which I'll do a separate post about) showing the County of London and the surrounding London areas.

It covers current and proposed land use residential and commercial (this was immediately after the war and much of the city needed re-development), looks at traffic & public transport solutions, population density problems and shows plans for the Thames riverside re-development. All of which are illustrated with these wonderful infographics...







The booklet credits the British Council for use of the illustrations, so I'm afraid the artist is unknown.

For more delightful ephemera have a dig around the rest of our reference box here.
