A lone car drives through a street of newly constructed prefab houses in Capenhurst, near Manchester. The homes were designed to provide much-needed accommodation after the destruction to property in World War II.
Sometimes called Atom Villages, the new settlements sprang up around the North West in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
Made primarily of pre-cast concrete and originally designed to last 10 years, around 157,000 prefab houses were built between 1945 and 1951. A number still survive today.
