Notes: These working class flats have been erected for Mrs Bernard Potter. We understand that they are much liked by the occupants, especially for the number of cupboards they provide and for the space in the balcony for perambulators and the general convenience of the arrangements. The roof is utilised for washing and as a playground for the children. The general idea of the plan is modelled on the flats erected by the LCC as also is the arrangement by which hot water is pumped from copper to bath. The contractors were Messrs Everitt, Croydon. Mr A G R Mackenzie FRIBA (A Marshall Mackenzie & Son) was the architect. [Builder 26 November 1926 p859]
