Pre-Fabs -“Arriving Any Day”

September 1946

South Yorkshire Times September 21, 1946


Conisbrough still awaits the first of its 45 pre fabricated aluminium houses to be erected on the Elm Green Lane site.

Latest information had been that it was hoped that the first would arrive on Monday, but later, the date was put back to Wednesday again without success.

On Tuesday, however, a crane capable of lifting 5 tonne loads arrived on The Oval, the name the Urban Council have chosen for the site, and enquiries by the “South Yorkshire Times” yesterday elicited the news that it was hoped that the dwellings “would be arriving any day.”
