THE ABERCROMBIE PLAN FOR PLYMOUTH 1943 Summary

The Plymouth Blitz was concentrated in seven devastating German air raids over March and April 1941. These raids left Plymouth reportedly the most heavily damaged city in the Great Britain and destroyed the towns beautiful medieval centre. Despite the vast destruction and loss of life Plymouth City Council looked to the future. Plymouth would be rebuilt it would be re-imagined, redesigned and reconstructed as a city for a new era in which early rational planning would serve the needs of the people.

On 1 September 1941 Plymouth City Council agreed that a redevelopment plan be prepared. That plan, 'A Plan for Plymouth' was prepared by Sir Patrick Abercrombie, a renowned and leading town planner of the day. Abercrombie’s plan was visionary, lending mostly to the designs of New Delhi, Canberra, Paris and Washington DC. This fantastic and rare book 'A Plan for Plymouth' was published on April 27th 1944, although this second edition publication carries the date 1943. The reconstruction work actually commenced in 1947.

This book measures 24.5cm by 31cm and contains many colour maps and detailed fold out plans of new and old Plymouth. The spine is loose and there is water damage on the front boards. All the maps are there including the elusive large map contained within the back cover. This book is not mint condition but is all there and very collectable. The price reflects condition.
