Excerpt from Public Abattoirs: Their Planning, Design, and Equipment

This work has been written with the object of not only advocating a general "abattoir system," but also to demonstrate that public abattoirs are an absolute necessity rather than a luxury.

I have endeavoured to prove that they are demanded in the cause of humanity, that they undoubtedly tend to decrease disease and mortality, and that they can, and should be, made self-supporting or profitable.

The subject has hitherto been so little studied in England that it is hoped this work may be useful in aiding municipal and other authorities, contemplating the erection of new abattoirs.

Almost without exception a request for the loan of drawings, or for information, frequently entailing a large amount of labour, has been met with a ready and willing response. In many cases sets of contract drawings, and valuable documents have been placed at my disposal, or copies of them supplied by borough architects, engineers, etc.

Where so many have been equally helpful, it would be invidious to mention names, but I take this opportunity of thanking the many gentlemen in my own and kindred professions who have so kindly aided me, individually and collectively.
