Take a moment to look at Cromwell Buildings and the plaque inside. This block of flats was built in 1864 and was one of the earliest examples of low-cost housing built for the working poor of London by philanthropic institutions. It was another 30 years before councils started to build housing themselves.

This point of interest is part of the tour: Blackfriars SE1 in the 1970s
