Notes: A rare and important early Abercrombie plan. Doncaster was the first British Regional Planning Scheme to be prepared (a previous project in South Wales being more in the nature of a Regional Survey). Abercrombie had come to prominence following his ground-breaking “Dublin of the Future” Plan (seen as the first modern plan for a city region). Doncaster was a rapidly expanding coal mining district and Abercrombie’s designs for new mining settlements are included. T. H. Johnson was a Doncaster architect and surveyor. An outstanding item.
