Abstract :
Addresses the nature of the putative links between Victorian housing organisations and modern housing associations. Existing literature tends to take for granted these links. In fact, very few of today's active housing associations can trace their origins directly back to before the First World War. Two such organisations are the Guinness Trust and the Octavia Hill Housing Trust, each of which represents a distinct tradition in voluntary housing. Draws on detailed archive research on these two trusts to illustrate how voluntary housing organisations survived, developed and changed in the period up to the watershed legislation represented by the Housing Act, 1974. ;
