Office reorganisation

(In the reorganisation, did they replace all the men with women?)

These are from this book, published in 1958 -
The symbols on the right are used in making "process charts" - respectively they represent operation, inspection, transport, storage, and delay. There is (or was) an entire science.......

This page can be enlarged (click on it) for reading -
"The light should come from the left" - hah, how often is natural light, from any direction, ignored in today's open-plan offices!

Some recommendations, though, have come to pass: "Roll-top desks are a means of perpetuating disorder, and they should not be seen in a modern office."

I love books with illustrations like the office plans. They would make interesting compositions for quilts.
