In the late 1920s and 30s many towns were expanding in to the countryside around as inner city slums were demolished and people needed to be rehoused. These semi detached houses in Sheffield, with long gardens, are typical of the planned new housing estates of this period. The snow is melting in interesting patterns on the roofs of the houses.
