The original guide to Letchworth Garden City

By Linda Dunn

This guide to the Garden City was published in 1906.

 It contains details of buildings and amenities already in the town and those to be established.

There is also a tourist type guide to the countryside and the benefits of moving to Letchworth. For those people interested in buying or renting property the guide contains plans of the newly constructed houses.The cost of one type of  3bedroom house in 1906 was about £175! Those were the days!

Facsimile copies of the guide are available to purchase from Letchworth Library.
