"Dolphin Square is the large imposing red brick block of flats built in the style of the thirties standing on the North Bank of the Thames between Vauxhall and Chelsea Bridges. Built between 1935 and 1937 and the reputed to be the largest development of its kind in Europe, Dolphin Square, which includes 1200 flats, a hotel, shops, restaurant, swimming pool, sports centre, garage and outstandingly beautiful gardens, has included among its residents members of every profession, to name but a few - actors, admirals, doctors, fashion models, generals, judges, lawyers, musicians, politicians, policemen, reporters, writers, members of the security services, and even the odd spy. Ken Morris, the writer of this book, came to the management of the Square after 33 years military service. This is his short, affectionate history of Dolphin Square, where he came to realise that there is nothing more interesting than people and nothing more rewarding than to serve them."
