Council Houses

Solidly built and for some the first time ever they’d had an indoor bathroom and running water. OK, only a cold water tap but a big improvement on the water pump outside in the communal yard. And a garden! Space to let the lawn grow tall or plant vegetables and flowers. Somewhere for the kids to run round. Imagine how that felt back in the thirties. Most have been sold off, two million in fact. Their like will never be seen again.
The heroine in book one of the Coronation Close series is over the moon when she acquires one. For the first time ever her family won’t be sharing their home with vermin, bugs and cockroaches. It’s just for them.
