San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
During the 1920s and 30s almost three million new suburban homes were built across North London, as improved transport links made it increasingly possible for people live away from the centre of the city. The Museum of Domestic Design and Architecture (MoDA) hold great collections of developers and estate agents brochures from the period. They offer a fascinating insight in to the type of housing built, and the facilities and lifestyle offered by interwar suburban development. Assistant Curator Maggie Wood will discuss examples of this material, plus photographs, magazines and other related ephemera. Join us for this friendly and informal session to find out more about what this type of material can tell us about suburbia and suburban life.
