The Austin Village. It was built to house the Austin Motor Car workers during the 1st world war.

Great trees line-up as well as houses' shadows Geoff !!

In our country it had also villages where the whole population worked in the same enterprise, like in a textil factory.

I love old trees. It gives the neighborhood such a warm inviting feel.
