Radford's Stores and Flat Buildings is a book authored by William A. Radford and was published in 1913. This book is a significant resource for architects, builders, and anyone interested in early 20th-century commercial and residential architecture and construction.

These pre-World War I architectural plans and designs marked a turning point in terms of modern amenities, particularly with the introduction of plumbing systems. While these apartment and flat designs were often intended to accommodate multiple occupants, it was common for only one bathroom to be included in the plans, which was considered sufficient for the entire family.

For many residents who had previously lived in homes without any modern plumbing facilities, having a single fully plumbed modern bathroom represented a significant improvement in their living conditions. It was a noteworthy step towards greater convenience and sanitation.

Furthermore, the kitchen plumbing in these designs typically included features like hot and cold piped water for the kitchen sink. In some cases, a range boiler was installed to serve as the hot water supply, especially for solid fuel ranges. These provisions were seen as adequate and marked progress in providing essential amenities for households of that time.
