Middle Class couple in the 1940’s

A portly man is sitting in a large chair in the living room, there is a small table in front of him, it is covered in dust and dirt. In front of the table is the fireplace, empty and stuffed with old newspapers. Just above the fireplace is a mantle piece, various pictures and trinkets litter the top of it. It too is covered in dust and dirt. On a small sofa sitting to the side is the mans wife, she holds a cup of tea in a chipped cup and her hands shake slightly. There is a wooden train set on the floor in front of her, where her child plays, the train is missing a wheel and so leans to one side. It is covered in dust and dirt. The floor is filthy, aside from the dust and dirt, there are pieces of plaster, wallpaper and bricks scattered about. Behind the family the Wall has fallen away, collapsed into a pile, sitting in the rubble is a large cylindrical metal object with fins sticking out of the back. The ruins of a poster hang on part of the wall where it has been torn away from the rest.
