Eliot Grove, Guiseley, council housing under costruction (Guiseley) (1 comment)
Black & White image1955. Image taken in July 1955 which shows post-war council housing under construction in Eliot Grove, an area located off Queensway. The site had formerly been used during the Second World War by M.A.P. (Ministry of Aircraft Production) for the provision of temporary homes. On the left in this view, built in red brick with flat roofs, some of the war-time M.A.P. bungalows are still standing. These homes were built for workers at the AVRO factory in Yeadon. The increase in production at AVRO meant a larger workforce and therefore more people moving into the area, creating an urgent need for this temporary housing.
