SOURCE: Robert Byron. How we celebrate the Coronation - a word to Londons visitors (London, 1937), front cover NOTES: This pamphlet (which was first published as an article in the Architectural Review in 1937) includes a list of "a few of London's historic buildings which have been demolished since the war, or threatened with destruction". It served as a scathing indictment of the perceived irresponsibility of landlords and senior members of the government and church in allowing valuable old buildings to be destroyed in the interest of short-term financial gain.

NOTES: Milton Keynes, which incorporated the existing towns of Bletchley, Wolverton and Stony Stratford along with another fifteen villages and farmland in between, was designated a new town in 1967 and planning control was thus taken from elected local authorities and delegated to the Milton Keynes Development Corporation (MKDC).
