Twenty Houses: A History of the Building of the South Para Reservoir

Join Martin Johnson and experience life in the work camps of the South Para Reservoir as he regales you with his stories and poems from his book Twenty Houses: an anecdotal history of the building of the South Para Reservoir 1948-1958.

Martin spent his entire childhood living at the camp. Fascinated by the lives of the men and women, the mothers and the children growing up in this working-class environment, he was moved to capture their stories.
