A DESCRIPTION OF THE TOWN OF GALAȚI, FROM THE YEAR 1942
Danubius, XXXVII, Galaţi, 2019, pp. 213-250.
The edilitary and urbanistic projects related to the town of Galați, started in the first half of the XIX-th century, needed a systematization plan in order to allow the further development of the town. Several attempts to elaborate such a plan took place at the beginning of the XX-th century but without being successfull. Between 1930 and 1931, the Town Hall of Galați, with the help of the French Air Company, realized a site plan, based on aerial photos, which was necessary for the realization of the systematization plan. Unfortunatelly, it contained several imprecisions regarding the limits of the town.
The issue of elaborating a systematization plan for the town of Galați is taken over in 1940, but the entry of Romania in the World War delayed the realization of this project. Nevertheless, in 1942, apart from the systematization plan, a description of the town of Galați is realized, description which also contains a development program for a period of five years.
