This chapter covers the London House and William Goodenough House in Mecklenburgh Square. By the 1970s, London House was as much an American dominion as South Kensington and Hampstead were. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, Americans living in Mecklenburgh Square were not agents of countercultural liberation. Mecklenburgh Square has not entirely immune to American-inspired countercultural liberationism. An American resident of London House criticized the gendered nature of British culture. The new American presence was noted by students, postgraduates, and junior academics that lived in bed-sits, very modest flats in less fashionable parts of town like Islington or Camden, or in residence halls like London House. Furthermore, the heritage appeal of Britain vibrated within the transatlantic special relationship and extended well beyond the class of the socially pretentious.
