Descriptive line

Lithograph showing the Tower House, Bedford Park, London, designed by Richard Norman Shaw in 1879, depicted by Adolf Manfred Trautschold, 1882

Labels and date

In 1874 William Morris imagined an ideal town where 'people lived in little communities among gardens and fields, so that they could be in the country in five minutes.' The realisation of this idea was Bedford Park, a suburban development funded by a socially minded entrepreneur and designed by several prominent architects. This print shows the Tower House and its surrounding garden. Bedford Park had an important influence on the Garden City Movement of the following decades. [2005]
