Public Concern and Measurements of Noise in the City

This article on historical facts in acoustics, centered on the subject of noise and health, is the final in the series that began with the article of the first anti-noise groups in 1895 and the first international anti-noise convention of 1908, and goes up to 1950 when the first urban zoning ordinances were published which established noise limits with numerical values in decibels.
