From the cover: “This booklet looks at the homes of working people in Oxfordshire over the last three hundred years or so. It looks at the countryman’s cottage before and after the great upheaval of Enclosure, at the house he occupied when he and his family moved into the town, the attic room his daughter shared when she went into service, and at the first council houses. It is very much a story of accommodation provided for the worker by his employer, by speculators or, eventually, by local councils.”
