9780853234555: A Guide to Port Sunlight Village

Port Sunlight was founded in 1888 by the industrialist Lord Leverhulme to house the workers from his prospering business—which would evolve into Unilever. Acclaimed for its planning and house design, Port Sunlight greatly influenced subsequent planned developments, as well as the garden city movement.

This fully revised version of A Guide to Port Sunlight marries the practical details of a guidebook with historical information about Port Sunlight’s design and architecture, its place in the history of urban planning, and Leverhulme's role in the town’s creation. A wealth of illustrations helps make this the perfect book for armchair and actual travelers to this jewel of nineteenth-century town planning.

Book Description Liverpool University Press, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. The model industrial village of Port Sunlight was founded by the soap manufacturer W. H. Lever (later Lord Leverhulme) in 1888 for the factory workers of his firm of Lever Brothers. The village was acclaimed from the first as exemplifying the best in English town planning and house design, and greatly influenced subsequent industrial villages such as Bournville, and the garden city movement more generally. This guide considers the village in its historical context, with particular emphasis on the planning and architectural aspects. It explains the social and visual significance of Port Sunlight and the reasons for its being unique in the history of town planning, as well as looking at the way its development was influenced by changing fashions in civic design. The relevance of Lever s own character and interests - his social conscience, his love of art and beauty and his architectural enthusiasms - is also examined. Two tours, one for pedestrians and one for car drivers, which include and describe the most significant buildings of the village, are an additional feature of the guide.
