after the Copenhagen cholera epidemic of 1853 a model housing estate was built outside the city walls


Emil Hornemann og Brumleby 1853 medstifter af Lægeforeningen mod Kolera.

Redigeret 01: "Hornemann skrev i 1876 i et skrift om arbejderboliger: Dette lille Arbejde tilegnes herved den danske Arbejderstand, som deraf blandt andet vil kunne skjønne, hvor meget Arbejde, og hvor meget Bekostning, Tid, Dygtighed, Uegennyttighed og Velvilje, der nu i en Række af Aar er ofret og fremdeles vil blive ofret af den saakaldte dannede Klasse for at skaffe Arbejderen et af Livets bedste Goder, nemlig en sund og billig Bolig og derved Betingelsen for et hyggeligt Familieliv og en god Børneopdragelse.
Kunne dette bidrage til, at de blandt Arbejderne, som hidtil kun med Mistro have seet paa Deres bedre stillede Medborgere, i Fremtiden vilde med velvillige og aabne Øjne betragte denne Klasse af Deres Medmennesker, da vilde de baade være en stor Ære for Arbejderen og en sand Glæde for Forfatteren."
