From Eileen Ray :


I was born in a Nissen hut, No 132 Whipps Cross Road 1947. I'm not sure but I believe the huts were used to temporarily re-home people before getting permanent lodgings. They were very near the Hollow Ponds and the Forest was our playground. On some occasions we would share our living room with a cow : the cows were free to roam. On a hot day your front door would be left open, then sometimes in walked a cow.
