SOURCE: Builder, vol. 7, 1849 July 14, p. 326 NOTES: Roberts's block of flats for 48 families was one of the early philanthropic housing schemes in London. This is his earliest housing project still standing and featured fireproof construction, access by wrought-iron balconies, and water-closets in each flat - revolutionary for working class dwellings at the time. The block was restored in 1956 by Sir Frederick Gibberd & Partners.
