This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search our rare books only. To search all books, try the form on the homepage.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

Piccadilly Circus Future Development - Proposals for A Comprehensive Development by the Planning Consultant Sir William Holford March 1962

London County Council, London
Foolscap quarto size (4to) in stiff card covers. 20pp text plus frontispiece, 4pp plates and 3 leaf folding plan and elevation at rear. The plates show 7 views of models for Holford's proposals for the regeneration of Piccadilly Circus which are largely archetypal late 50's modernist in style, but with some very futurist features including a 'Vertical Feature' (sic) multi-storey tower, fountain cum ice rink, and a hotel with roof design reminiscent of Robert Matthew's Commonwealth Insitute. Perhaps fortunately none of his building proposals went any further than the drawing board, but his plans for the partial pedestrianisation and street layout closely resemble the actual redevelopment carried out in the early 1990's
