The Tarran was designed by the building firm of Robert Greenwood Tarran of Hull. It was built of precast concrete panels on a wooden frame. 19,014 Tarrans were erected under the Temporary Housing act, but one- and two-storey variants were built in some numbers afterwards. The furnishings in this carefully arranged living room are still very 1930s in style.
