Holly Street estate, Dalston. Built in 1966-71 for Hackney Borough Council, the Holly Street estate originally included four tower blocks and provided 1,145 homes. By the 1990s, much of the estate faced demolition. At the time this photo was taken, two tower blocks had been replaced by new terraced housing. This remaining tower was refurbished as sheltered housing for the elderly.
