How it works


This copy is signed by L Fouche on the front cover.

Despite its 37-year age and the enormous differences in conditions and requirements then and now, this detailed (157 pp) report still has relevance for, for example, the problem of the rapidly escalating cost of RDP housing, especially because of the commission's distinguished membership, which included senior Housing Department officials, architects, representatives of the building society movement and the director of the National Building Research Institute and the Agrement Board of the CSIR.

Blue card covers, vii + 150 pp of double-column typeset text, tables and diagrams, including plot and township layouts - all in very good condition.
