Prefabricated buildings under construction at Kentish Town. After foundations had been laid, these prefabricated buildings could be erected in just four and a half days. Henry Grant photographed the concrete partition walls being lowered into position on site in Kentish Town. Once completed, the maisonette blocks with their external stairwells stood in contrast to the surrounding Victorian terraces.
