The London County Council was once a the world's biggest municipal executive and a laboratory for social experimentation prior to the good battle. It sought to grasp the issues of metropolitan amelioration, political economic system and public culture.
Pennybacker's social historical past assessments the imaginative and prescient of London Progressivism opposed to its practitioners' accomplishments. She argues that the old reminiscence of the hopes encouraged via LCC fulfillment and the disillusions spawned by means of failure, are powerful forces in present day deeply ambivalent responses to metropolitan politics in London. The `new women', bohemian London, scandal within the construction undefined, midwifery, accommodation homes, kid's provision and the track corridor have been all provocative concerns in LCC paintings. Their tale richly inspires existence within the turn-of-the-century city and illustrates the complexities of `municipal socialism'.
