Linale House N1

img 9387

A notice on the brick building to the right says:

“Linale House, the first block of flats to be erected on the Wenlock Barn Estate was opened by his worship the Mayor of Shoreditch Alderman RG Linale JP on the 10th September 1949. Chairman of the housing Committee Coun. J Samuels, Vice Chairman Coun. RJ Tallentire LCC.”

A more recent wooden notice says it’s managed by

“Hackney Homes in partnership with Hackney Council”.

Even more recently, Twitter says on April 1st 2016
