Homeless single people, prepared to put up with the conditions and the nearby multiple railway lines, squatted an empty block in 1980, and formed a Co-op with the plan of renovating the flats. The Council stood by their plan to demolish for an industrial development on the site. Now Coronation Co-op are being rehoused and repairing short-life houses eslewhere in Lambeth'.From 'As Safe...As Houses', an exhibition on short-life housing in Lambeth put together in 1981 by Julian Quan with photographs by Peter Murphy.
