Taken in 1931, this image shows a different kind of home - the dawn of the Council House Estate. Wide, crescent-shaped roads (people walking, no cars)new shopping units and for the first time many people had their own gardens. It was a huge improvement on the back-to-back houses in the heavily industrialised areas. We believe that the playing fields are still well used...but did they ever complete that road?
