'When We Build Again', 1941

In 1941 the Bournville Village Trust produced a publication entitled When We Build Again, which detailed research (carried out between 1935 and 1938) into living and working conditions in Birmingham. The charts reproduced here show that the vast majority of new building in the interwar period took place on the outskirts of the city. Large numbers of Birmingham's citizens moved out to these estates - and so the distance they travelled to and from work increased, as did the fares they paid.
Catalogue reference: ZLIB 17/257, plate nos. III and VIII (1941)
