ABSTRACT
This article presents a thesis on the politics of council housing in Sheffield and Bristol, England from 1919 to 1939.

Working-class pressure for housing reform exerted most influence on policy when industrial and neighborhood based labor organizations were pursuing the same ends. Sheffield and Bristol were chosen as case studies because of their different social, economic, and political conditions. In both cities the local authority built significant numbers of houses between the wars and the rate of building accelerated when Labour took office,
