Excerpt from Proceedings of the Engineers' Club of Philadelphia, 1914, Vol. 31 But there is another side of this. Such subdivision of the land so as to build back lot houses has been legally stopped. The laying out of streets on a narrow basis without any precautions to control the use of such streets or the permanency of the type of occupancy is still going on. The minimum requirements for the open areas in and about buildings has been changed so that instead of per mitting a family to share an alley with the adjoining families for a playground, the law now says each house shall have at least 144 square feet of open space, but the builder can put it in a strip running along the side and back of the house in any width he wishes Some have made this strip five feet wide. The neighboring owner has built clean up to his property line, thus producing as vicious a type of an alley as anything perpetrated in the olden days. It is entirely feasible to house a population, under our present build ing code, of 300 people, in small dwellings, to the acre, including streets in the estimate. If recourse is made to the tenement type, building only four-story houses, we can easily create a density of people to the acre. These evils are visionary, do you say?
