Annan printed this album in three editions in 1871, 1877, and 1900 respectively according to Fisher. The 1871 process was calotype, 1877, carbon, and 1900 a gravure process. The City Improvement Trust was the body which was charged with the task of cleaning up the squalid living conditions that existed in the city in the second half of the nineteenth century. Learning from visits to Paris, to see the work of Baron Haussmann, the trustees were very successful in adapting the traditional tenement house style to rehouse many thousands of people. This edition was limited to 100 copies.
