This program looks on urban landscapes as a series of layers of architectural evidence, each of which is the key to another chapter in the history of the area. It examines how industrialization led to urbanization, which led to higher rents and overcrowding, which in turn led to governmental controls; it also shows how railways and improved transportation opened up cities, and led to the growth of suburbs.
