It was while reading Elman and Fried's reader, Charles Booth's London, that I first had the idea to write this essay concerning London's urbanization and the housing of its working classes. A few months later, I spent my Easter vacation in London at which time I viewed several products of the model housing movement stemming from the late years of the nineteenth century. This visit generated continued interest in the project. Because I would like to study architecture and/or regional planning at the professional graduate level, the thought of an essay regarding the urbanization of London and its physical growth greatly appealed to me.
