Kensington : flats, Tor Gardens
Of these buildings, Ian Nairn in his Modern Buildings in London (London Transport, 1964) writes : "A rarity in L.C.C. housing - a block of three-storey flats with fairly high rents in a high-class neighbourhood. They are so effective that I wish more had been built ... The real tragedy is that this is exactly the kind of house that most East Enders would like and which the L.C.C. will not give them"
