Ivy Walk, Becontree
The houses here are typical of the inter-war Becontree Estate, a vast area of housing built by the old London County Council to relieve overcrowding in the East End. To many of the estate's first residents it must have seemed like paradise, not only were there unheard of luxuries like inside toilets but plenty of open space including Parsloes Park seen here in the background.
