It is estimated that almost 6 million houses were built during the 19th century. The rapid growth of industry had created a demand for housing in towns and cities and this demand was met through the work of thousands of independent builders like James Hartnoll, featured on this leaflet, who is advertising flats in Bermondsey, the Borough and Poplar. His houses were fitted with the latest fittings such as an inside toilet and piped water that was supplied to a sink in the kitchen. At this time these flats would have been in great demand.
