I HAVE been asked by the Editor of The Structural Engineer to write an article on Housing. From a technical point of view, I suppose the great majority of my readers know much more about it than I do myself; but I have lived for 20 years in what are commonly called slum districts, and perhaps I am qualified to speak a little from that point of view with which the readers of this Journal are not so intimately acquainted,
namely, the physical and moral deterioration which must ensue from the terrible conditions under which so many of our more unfortunate brethren are bound to live.
