Queen's Park Estate, Kilburn Lane. I saw only one terrace block of these sweet little houses, but when I did my geotagging I could see that there are several streets of similar terraces, with variations in the gables and entrances.

Found this online at www.findaproperty.com/areaguidebook.aspx?edid=00&sale... : "The 1868 Artisans & Labourers Dwelling Act had given local authorities the power to clear slums, and this estate was built between 1870 and 1890 by the Artisans, Labourers and General Dwelling Company.

Their 2,000 brick terraced cottages have remained eternally popular and the company's aim reeks of Victorian paternalism: "To provide the labouring man with an increase of the comforts and convenience of life whilst providing full compensation for the capitalist".

Most of the homes are now privately owned and a strict conservation area is in force, with no double glazing and only Welsh slate allowed as a roofing material."
