London Up to Date – George Augustus Sala, 1895:

All over western, south-western, and north-western London, huge mansions are rising up in the shape of residential flats. I have occupied one in Screech Owl Street, S.W., during the last five years. Here it is! Large, well-erected house – I have never cared to inquire how many storeys high – without the slightest suspicion of jerry-building about it.
