In 1902 the Peabody Estate in Rosendale Road
opened to its first tenants. Built away from smoky central London, near Brockwell Park, it was a pioneering venture in social housing.
But who got to be a tenant? More importantly, who got to keep their tenancy? Bob Reeves, who has lived in Herne Hill since 1980 explores the view that the project was primarily for “respectable” working class tenants.
