velopment is that the Rowton Houses are being upgraded. The one I know best, in King's
Cross Road, has been entirely reconstructed. The other five are to follow. Hard benches
and cell-like cubicles have given way to television sets and bed-sitting rooms with built-in
furniture. The doss-house is becoming as out of date as the dinosaur.
* The Carreras Factory - Arcadia Works - has since undergone alterations, and the Egyptian char-
acter referred to above considerably modified, particularly in the polychrome decoration.
