The End of an Era by J. M. Richards
The London County Council, which the Government has just announced is to be disbanded, has done remarkable work in creating a new urban landscape in many parts of London. Housing estates at Roehampton, in the East End, and south of the Thames have aroused admiration all over the world. J. M. Richards asks whether splitting the work of the L.C.C. Architect's Department among the London boroughs, as is now proposed, will allow anything like the same standards to be kept up.
