I think this may well be the old Broadwater Press building where I worked from 1967-69.

Ultra-modern factory in 1926. Not extant on OS maps for 1925. Architectural influences - American or German?

Opened 1920, closed September 1926 when the new station opened. See http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/w/welwyn_garden_city_halt/index.shtml for more information about this temporary station. There was a smaller platform serving the Hertford branch for the same time period and for the same purpose opposite this platform.

This is another image that I find very interesting for this category... If you click on 'see image record', you will find that lots of people have already pinned the image, noting all the different industries that rapidly grew before the beginning of WW2 in this place - quite obviously after this image was taken!



I do find the concept of Garden Cities generally quite interesting but don't personally know a lot about them - has anybody come across collection images of other planned cities across the country yet?

Sir Ebenezer Howard (1850 –1928) is known for his publication Garden Cities of To-morrow (1898), the description of a utopian city in which people live harmoniously together with nature.



This resulted in Welwyn and Letchworth garden cities near London. The ideas were also used in relation developments, such as Bournville by the Cadburys in Birmingham and the Rowntrees in York. I have annotated EPW001104 Bournville.



The concept of the garden city is in contrast to the planned city. There are numerous examples of geometric developments in the Britain from Above collection, for example Billingham EPW032188. However, these do not always carry with them the philosophical approach to the relationship between those dwelling in the garden city and the landscape. For example, Cadbury insisted that the housing provided for workers in the chocolate factory should include a garden with an apple tree, thus encouraging a productive relationship with the land. Indeed, many of the Bournville’s houses might be described as cottages, reminiscent of those built on the more well-found English country estates from the shire countries. The garden city was attempting to bring the country to the town.
