A well illustrated and large pamphlet for the community of Angmering-On-Sea. Located approximately 65 miles from London, just below the South Downs, on a stretch of seacoast between Littlehampton and Worthing. Angmering- on- Sea “... is the outcome of the cleverly conceived idea of founding a practically self - contained community with its own Water Supply, Drainage System and Roads and its own Sport Club, Tennis Club, Shopes, etc....The Estate is planned on novel lines, every road being bordered with flower beds, trees and shrubberies...The houses are well-built and picturesque, standing back from the shady roads in beautifully kept gardens.” ( from the introductory remarks) The 41 lots at the estate are well described and indicated in groups on 12 plans (segments of the whole with more detail).These include freehold cottages; court stables; distinctive residences; flats; business premises; building sites; more residences, etc. The photographs illustrate Palm Court ( attached residences) a block of shops and flats, Angmering Court ( a handsome court and residential complex), a view of the Lido, tea room and promenade. As this estate was being auctioned as a whole or in parts, it seems that the original developers were not involved in the completion of the plan. Yet, the plan, itself, is well detailed and the overall key plan gives a sense of what might have been a truly elegant development. “ In Keeping” Large sewn pamphlet, 36.5 x 24.5cm.; 26 pp. + fold-out key plan as frontispiece + 12 full page plans with color of which 2 are fold-out + 4 black and white photographs on 2 plates + sales particulars insert.
