Councillor J. Samuels

Person  Male 

Chairman of the Shoreditch Housing Committee in 1940. From Tower Block: "Aggressive site-acquisition underpinned London's most forceful borough housing drive: that of Shoreditch MBC. This authority was fortunate in its plentifull industrial rate revenue and its relatively low slum decanting requirement. Under its Housing Chairman, J. Samuels, and its Borough Surveyor, J. Sharratt {presumably Fulcher's successor}, Shoreditch launched vigorously into the building of repetitive slab blocks (from 1948) and point blocks (from 1955)."
