SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION ON THE LINCOLN BUILDING APPLICATIONS DATABASE, 1866-1952  

Detailed ground plan for Design B houses in St Giles’ Avenue, a small development of large semi-detached ‘villas’.  


Fig. 4.1    This is one of the most impressive and well-preserved plans so far seen.  There is a lot of detail, some of it conveyed in the colour-coding, which appears to on the following lines: brown for brick walls, pink (or carmine) for tiled floors, yellow for wooden floors and grey for what were probably brick (or possibly concrete) floors and the surrounds of the coppers.  The verandah was to have wooden posts.     Source: City of Lincoln Council building application records deposited in Lincolnshire Archives, courtesy of Lincolnshire County Council
