They were designed by the architech Henry Roberts for the Society for Improving the Condition of the Labouring Classes. Over £5000 was raised in church collections on the Day of National Thanksgiving for deliverance from the cholera epidemic of 1849 towards financing the building - hence the name. The flats were designed to accomodate 28 families in self-contained one and two roomed flats and had 64 rooms for 128 women. (information taken from streets of Old Holborn as above).
