Jarvis Square, prefabricated houses, shortly to be demolished.
September 2006. These prefabricated houses in Jarvis Square are a typical example of housing erected during the Governments Temporary Housing Programme at the end of the Second World War. Residents became very fond of their homes on this estate and made improvements over the sixty years of their existance. The image was photographed during demolition, so the houses have a original neglected air. They far outlived their 'temporary' life span of only 10 years.
