Parliament Hill Mansions

These - built 1889-1906 - are near Gospel Oak overground station, to the south of Hampstead Heath. I had just missed a train so took a little walk and was struck by the different tiles in the doorways -

Flats 11-90
 ...and some former inhabitants -
Alice Zimmern, 1885-1939, pioneering advocate for women's education and suffrage

Haydn Wood, composer (1882-1959; 2nd floor) and RH Tawney, economic historian (1880-1962; 1st floor)
