A garden city next to Brookmans Park - a 1911 sales pitch
« on: August 25, 2016, 02:49:33 pm »
Brookmans Park might have ended up on the edge of a garden city if the sales pitch on an auction brochure printed in 1911 had been acted upon. Leggatts Estate on the Great North Road was described as a "unique opportunity" for creating "a higher grade garden city" with its 3,000 yard frontage on The Great North Road.
