|||Cottingley Housing Estate, Pre-Fab Plan (Cottingley) (11 comments)
Plan showing the layout of a typical pre-fabricated home built on the Cottingley Housing Estate in the late 1940s. The pre-fabs were built on the site of the old Cottingley Hall estate, intended as a temporary measure to solve a housing shortage, but it was not until the 1970s that more permanent dwellings replaced them.

|||Flowers for Leeds Competition, St. Mark's pre-fab estate (Woodhouse) (1 comment)
View of a garden entered into the Flowers For Leeds Competition in 1951. It was situated on the post-war St. Mark's pre-fab estate and gardeners working with cleared sites such as this one only had a very shallow layer of soil to create their displays. Mr. G.H. Blane of 21 St. Mark's Street entered the annual competition regularly and won prizes, including first prize in his class in 1952 and 1954.
