Top Customer Reviews

Although this book was bought as a gift for a friend who loves Prefabs, I did get a chance to flick through it with her, and I was very impressed (and, more importantly, so was she!)

The photos are beautifully done, and the book captures the emotional connection many people felt, and still do feel, about their Prefabs.

Really, the book focuses on the lives of people who lived in the Prefabs, and how they felt about them, rather than being an historical account of prefabricated housing. After the war, when so many people lived in squalid conditons in run-down Victorian terraces, Prefabs represented a spacious, clean and ultra modern way of life. Most people who managed to move to a prefab felt extremely lucky and loved their new homes... even into the '70s when they started to be destroyed to make way for more modern housing stock.

Built as a temporary housing solution, many people still lived in their Prefabs 20 or 30 years after they moved into them. Most have now been demolished, but many of the previous residents still miss living in them, and look back very fondly on their lives there.

The book captures this sense of pride and post-war modernity perfectly, and is a very interesting snapshot into prefab life.

Thank you very much for the book. Very pleased with the service from Steve. It is a pictorial book about prefabs and the people who lived in them, great for the research that I am doing at present.
