A scarce building society poster issued by the Leeds Permanent Building Society in the mid-1930s, featuring a large detached family home in the Arts & Crafts manner. Building societies fueled the interwar boom in suburban house building. Publicity often featured larger properties (sometimes referred to as ‘homesteads’) rather than the more typical semi-detached homes of the new estates.
