Prefab Bungalow

This prefab bungalow at 14 Craigour Avenue has had new windows and door fitted, but appears to have retained many of its original features - including the chimney!

This is one of about three thousand prefab bungalows that were erected in Edinburgh in the 1940s, to cope with the housing shortage following World War II.  Most have now vanished, but several still remain in the Moredun / Craigour district of Edinburgh.
