From Tower to Tower Block

Photo: Illustrative image for the 'From Tower to Tower Block' page

As the title suggests, this is a wide ranging look at the buildings of Hackney, a historical survey across the ages, from Gothic church to high rise flats, and revealing unique and idiosyncratic corners in between.

The buildings are described in their context, explaining why they look how they do, in terms of the building technology, social values and architectural style which were prevalent at the time of construction.
