The philanthropist, William Austin, built the estate of which Enbrook Street forms a part. Austin had turned to philanthropy after giving up drink at the age of 47 and, reflecting his temperance views, the estate had no pub.

It did have other amenities including shops, churches, schools, a community hall and a library, and baths and washhouses in nearby Kensal Town. In 1882, ex-pupils of one of the schools- on the corner of Enbrook Street and Third Avenue - started a football club which eventually grew into the modern day Queen’s Park Rangers.

One amenity not provided, although mentioned in the initial prospectus, was an open space for recreation. When Farrant Street, parallel with Enbrook Street, was demolished in the 1970s, residents finally got their little oasis of greenery - a century after it was promised.

Initially there were four classes of houses on the estate, with weekly rents raging from 7/6d to 11 shillings - that’s 37.5p-55p in today’s money - with a turret or a bay window costing 6d a week extra. These were set at a level designed to attract the steadier workman in regular employment likely to conform to the estate’s relatively strict set of rules. As a result of this policy, the status of the estate was much higher than surrounding areas. Only on fifth of the Queen’s Park’s inhabitants lived in poverty, for example, compared to 55% across the water in Kensal Town. This state of affairs continued well into the inter-war period.

Queens Park Estate

The part of Queen's Park which is in the W10 postcode and City of Westminster, is known as the Queens Park Estate.

It was built from 1874 by the Artisans, Labourers & General Dwellings Company. The architecture of that estate of some 2000 small houses is distinctively Gothic-revival, with polychrome brickwork, pinnacles and turrets along the bigger roads.

It retains First Avenue, Second Avenue etc up to Sixth Avenue, and originally had streets A-P. The street names have been made into full words, (Alperton Street, Barfett Street, Caird Street, Droop Street, Embrook Street, Farrant Street, Galton Street, Huxley Street, Ilbert Street, Kilravock Street, Lothrop Street, Marne Street, Nutbourne Street, Oliphant Street, Peach Street).

It was on this estate that the first QPR footballers had their homes.
