This can then be searched by local historians and students of art and architecture.  We take original Leicester City building plans and transfer details onto a form in preparation for a LDFAS member to input.  Join us to chart the tumultuous changes brought on by World War 1 and the Roaring 20’s. We have just processed Edwin Lutyens’ designs for the Victoria Park war memorial.
