A Guide to Port Sunlight Village
2006 | PDF | 112 pages | 8,5 mb
Port Sunlight was founded in 1888 by the industrialist Lord Leverhulme to house the workers from his prospering business—which would evolve into Unilever. Acclaimed for its planning and house design, Port Sunlight greatly influenced subsequent planned developments, as well as the garden city movement.This fully revised version of A Guide to Port Sunlight marries the practical details of a guidebook with historical information about Port Sunlight’s design and architecture, its place in the history of urban planning, and Leverhulme's role in the town’s creation. A wealth of illustrations helps make this the perfect book for armchair and actual travelers to this jewel of nineteenth-century town planning.
