THE CHANGES SINCE 1920

The movement of the population from the Centre to the Outer Ring since 1920 is clearly shown. Since 1920 nearly eight times as many houses have been built in the Outer Ring as in the Middle Ring and Central Wards. This chart emphasises the small amount of new domestic building carried out recently in the Central and Middle Rings.

THOSE LIVING ON NEW HOUSING ESTATES
TRAVEL FURTHER TO WORK
The transport map showed how the Municipal Estates are, for the most part, on the outskirts.
This chart based on figures for municipal householders, emphasises that dwellers on these estates have further to travel, and so spend more each week than those in the Central and Middle Wards. In the lower chart the red columns show the percentage of municipal householders spending various amounts in fares to and from work each compared with the black columns which show comparable percentages for all householders. The chart demonstrates the extra expense incurred by living on outlying estates.
