The Eyre Estate, formerly known as the St John’s Wood Estate, commissioned me to catalogue and study their archive. This five year long project (2005-2010) culminated in the publication of Cottages and Villas – The Birth of the Garden Suburb. I also co-ordinated the move of this previously unknown private archive to Westminster City Archives where it may now be consulted.
