1950 Frank Scott at Prefabs


36003149_2178969205453584_1761087044064378880_nElizabeth Weaver shared this photo from around 1950, adding, “This is my Uncle Frank (Scott), cousin Robert and cousin Ian in the pram. Taken at the prefabs in High Blantyre. Possibly on Mossgiel Street?”

The prefabs at High Blantyre were still relatively new at this time.

Speaking of the prefabs, Elizabeth added, “They were lovely. I remember they had fitted fridges, long before fridges were commonly used. Large gardens and picket fencing.”

Thanks to Elizabeth for sharing.
