    Default Liverpool Prefab Houses

    1) Huts at an old Army Camp, Knotty Ash. Junction of Queens Drive and Prescot Road.

    They were built to accommodate the American Troops during WW1. Purchased afterwards by Liverpool Corp to house families during the post war shortage.

    2) Gillmoss prefabs were built to accommodate families that had been bombed during the war.

    3) and 4) Bellevale prefabs.

    There were a few on Lowerbreck rd L6.

    when I was a kid I remember when they were standing derelict. We used to take a bottle of lemmo and some butties and go inside and play house

    The kids then didn't dream of smashing places up.

    shows what it meant to them.

    Belle Vale's prefab site was the largest in the country (I seem to remember reading somewhere)

    There were also some in Croft Street and Commercial Road (on my site b&w photos page) and also some in Silvester st and Prince Edwin street.
