Abstract

In Dreamstreets: A Journey Through Britain’s Village Utopias, Jacqueline Yallop takes readers on a tour of Britain’s historical ‘model villages’, providing accounts of the philanthropists, architects and manufacturers behind such communities as New Lanark and Port Sunlight. While Yallop offers an immersive, beautifully written voyage that critically reflects upon the less ‘utopian’ aspects of these experiments, Tom Kelsey would have welcomed more inclusion of voices ‘from below’ – i.e. from those who inhabited the villages.
