'Dolly Houses' on Whitleigh Green - Plymouth
'Dolly Houses' on Whitleigh Green - Plymouth
Known to us as 'Dolly Houses' they were a basic design for providing housing in the city after the WW II when much of the housing stock and city itself had been destroyed. How we wanted to escape our little flat to live in one of these out in the countryside. Now many have been bought by their tenants as can be seen from the various 'improvements' and they have been swallowed up to form part of the social hurly burly and all that goes with it of the outer suburbs.
