    Default Liverpool Prefab Houses

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

    Advertisements -------

    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.

    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.

    I vaguely remember prefabs on a site opposite the Royal Hospital. I was very young at the time, and recall thinking "people live there!!!".

    There was Prefabs on Townsend Ave by Broadway barracks. My brother used to do the window cleaning round on them. I have tried to find pics of them but have not been successful. It would be great to see them.

    These were the ones in the now abolished Croft Street I mentioned earlier. There is a booklet on the Belle Vale prefabs in News from Nowhere showing plenty of pics.

    Was it prefabs that were opposite the Royal years ago? I thought I remember seeing caravans there sometime in the 1970's...But maybe it was prefabs.

    There were some caravans located somewhere around the Everton brow area. After all the streets were demolished travellers moved in.
    This would probably be around late 1960s early 70s.

    Does anyone remember ?
