The Victorian Villas of Hackney


The Victorian Villas of Hackney

This book explores the growth of Victorian Hackney, from little more than a village in 1837 when Queen Victoria ascended the throne, to a handsome suburb with well-built and spacious houses.

The book explains how Hackney's suburban development took place, who built the houses in the area and what models they copied. It also describes the first inhabitants of this Victorian suburb and accounts for the social transformation that Hackney has experienced in the century since.

Instructions are also provided on how to find out more about your own home or a specific building of interest.
