The Children of the Blitz
Vauxhall hosts three important and poignant pieces by Peter Laszlo Peri, a Hungarian refugee who had developed a technique for sculpting in wet concrete directly onto a wall.
Lambeth Council commissioned him to create three memorials, including to children killed in the war. They were all placed on public housing built after World War 2 to replace bomb-damaged houses. They are pictured below in this order:
- Boys Playing Football - on Wareham House, Carroun Road,
- Children Playing - on Horton house, Meadow Road, and
- Following the Leader - on Darley House, Laud Street
