  Dr Michael Passmore:

Tracing the Legacy of the Homes for Heroes Campaign, 1919–23

How the Metropolitan Boroughs that formed modern Hackney responded to the post-World War 1 housing crisis, under the Addison Act of 1919, which was the first experiment in subsidised council housing in Britain. How did they compare to other authorities, and what was their legacy? Are there lessons to be learned today?
