HISTORICAL NOTE: at the turn of the C19/C20 the Chester
Cottage Improvement Company attempted philanthropically to
provide model dwellings for working people, a task which the
City Council did not have the resources to undertake until
after 1918. During the C19 cottages in Love Street had been
some of the worst in Chester. See also Priory Place Nos 1-5
