Context

Administrative/Biographical history:

The Metropolitan Artizans' and Labourers' Dwellings Association bought some of the land around Battersea Park from the Crown at 1,600 per acre. Battersea Park had been established in the 1850s and the station for the Brighton and Chatham Railway was opened in 1867. The area was also being developed by others such as the Artizans' and General Labourers' Dwellings Company (who built the Shaftesbury Estate). Charles Barry Junior was Architect to the Association, which also had dwellings in King's Cross and later became known as the Victoria Dwellings Association.

The buildings consisted of 3 blocks, one for artisans (98 tenements of 3/4 rooms) and two for labourers (each having 90 tenements of 1/2 rooms). They were of 4 storeys and were built in yellow stock brick.

The Victoria Dwellings, Battersea Park Road were demolished in 1983.
