If there was less fretting over architecture and more over atmosphere our towns would be better places.” From*Modern Buildings in London, London Transport, 1964
We used a line from this in a piece we wrote about Nairn*available in*Back of a Beer Mat, our free e-book collecting various*beer-related ‘longreads’ (https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/536591).
