Using pamphlets, photographs, diaries and ephemera from our Special Collections, this Hands-on History course examines the history of housing in London. Topics covered include Victorian living conditions, interwar slum clearances, post-war council housing and the ‘flight to the suburbs’. The focus is on everyday experiences as we seek to understand the social meaning of house and home for Londoners from the 1870s to the 1960s.
