    Over 100 photos were taken of this innovative scheme. A traction engine pulling a trailer carried the preformed slabs from Cobbs Quarry on St. Domingo road to the site. They were made using clinker from a refuse destructor and was masterminded by John Alexander Brodie.

    The 1906 map does not list the building as PH Public house. It is all on the map and the glass house is listed as PH. opposite over Vauxhall road is a huge Gasworks, so maybe named after these?

    All I can say is, it's definitely a pub,as there are ad's for Kensington mild, etc, on the side of the place.It's on the same side of Vauxhall as the "Glasshouse",

    Hi Steve
    didn't have long in LRO today, but I did have a quick shufty at the 1901 Gores directory.

    198 Vaughall Rd (Glasshouse) Mary O'Connor -Licenced Victualler
    196 Vauxhall Rd on t'other side of Eldon St... Patrick O'Brien -shopkeeper.

    sorry hun, not a pub unless it was in the 19th century? if you can give me a rough year or decade of when you think it was pub let me know and I'll have another look.

    When were Eldon St tenements demolished?
    Any idea why they never built any more when they were half the cost to build?

    Brodie did not invent concrete prefabrication, so I believe, but a US architect, Grosvenor Atterbury, took up his lead and did some good work incorporating insulation into the panels.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    Deffo looks like a pub to me too.

    Here's more on the flats here, demolished in the 1960s for Our Lady's school.

    More about 'bad' prefab housing of this ilk here:

    http://www.sw-norrisgreen.co.uk/decline.htm


    It is known that Brodie's prefab houses were exhibited at a sort of forerunner to an ideal homes exhibtion at Letchworth.

    Some more info here, Atterbury came later WW.
