Almshouses



They must exist in other capitals, but London's Almshouses stand out for me. Those we see were mostly built from the early 18th Century onwards, like these, Mercer Cottages, in the East End. Small but perfectly proportioned, they are a lot more pleasing on the eye than much social housing these days.

Who lives in them now? Likely rather wealthy people!
