Prefab

This is a picture of a prefab in Polmeere road Treneere estate. This photo was taken 26th October 1979. This was home to the Eva family who left it claiming that the prefab was rat infested. These prefabs were erected after the war to deal with the housing shortage. They were only intended to be used for a short while. They came flat packed and erected on site... and made completely from asbestos! They were cold in the winter and hot in the summer! supplied by Steff

Yes I do, Kim is nearer my age. I remember Ian falling from the tree, tragic. We all used to muck around together in our early teens. I lived in Lower Peverell Road.
