Sandra Lark as a child in a side-car attached to a tandem bicycle outside a prefabricated Nissen hut. The Lark's were allocated a prefab in Loughborough Gardens, Brixton North, built by American engineers in 1944 as temporary accommodation for bombed-out families. Sandra recalls: 'the entrance lead into a large room with fireplace in the centre of the wall that divided the bedroom at the rear from the main living area. Mother hung a curtain on the right which hid the sink in which we bathed, the cooker and the dining table....there were two outside privies [toilets] and coal sheds in front, for our house and the one next door.'Digital image by kind permission of Sandra Clark.
