Two volumes containing watercolour paintings depicting improvements in labourers' cottages. Each page contains two images, the cottage as it was before improvements and as it was after. The 1860 volume in particular reveals cottages transformed by the improvements. The 1865 volume is less dramatic, mainly depicting the installation of windows in the cottages, and in one case, the construction of a horseshoe shaped forge.
