Descripción

Manuscript note by Harold Sidney Harmsworth (later Viscount Rothermere) at head of first page: 'When Em [pet name for Cecil Harmsworth] had a long talk with the Prince of Wales - I being detained in the H of Commons | [signed] H'. 8vo, 8 pp. Stapled pamphlet. Good, on lightly-aged paper with slight rust to staples. Fair, on aged and lightly-creased paper. On pp. 4 and 5 brief details are given of the subjects of the eight films shown: 'Port Sunlight', 'Bournville', 'A Bit of Thameside', 'Letchworth', 'Hampstead Garden Suburb', 'Well Hall', 'Gretna' and 'War Seal Homes'. Talks by Raymond Unwin, Captain R. L. Reiss and W. J. Roberts. Pages 2 and 3 relate to 'A National Campaign for good Houses', beginning 'The end of the war has brought the country face to face with a housing problem so grave that it cannot be evaded. Our men have fought, over 600,000 have died, and we have been exhorted to make Britain "a country fit for heroes to live in." It is well known that a root trouble for years before the war was slums - slums in the country and slums in the towns; and not only slums, but monotonous houses, badly planned in dreary surroundings, and the war has greatly intensified the trouble.' Page 6 carries details of the Association, under headings including 'Lantern Slides' and 'Information Bureau'. P.7 carries a list of 'Books to Read', and advertisements for 'Jackson Electric Stove Company, Ltd.' ('Electric Cooking & Heating Are necessary features of a hygienic home.') and 'Venner Time Switches, Limitied' ('RENT should include ELECTRIC LIGHT'). The last page lists the Associations officers, including 'Members of Council, 1919'. N° de ref. de la librería 8420
