About this item
The book is described as " A vivid portrait of post-war Bermondsey through the eyes of the Pre-Fab generation". The book tells the story of a group of teenage friends in the last year of their liberty before being called up for National Service in the 1950s. "Living in the close community of a Prefab village, their everyday adventures create a vivid portrait of post-War Bermondsey that many of us will recognise. To those living in the old terraces, the Prefab generation seemed imbued with a new confidence, facing life with a frankness and enviable freedom sadly missed today...." The book has original illustrations by the author.
