Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Fab.

Fabulously an Acrostic Poem

Full of promise full of life

Always running full of hype

Blessed with memories and joy

Unisex? Girl or boy

Little things we hold so dear

Out of this world far and near

Unending fun and fashion sense

Sing the old songs sing the new

Living happy not in fear

You and me fab and gear.

And now for something completely different.

After the second world war, due to heavy bombing there was an acute shortage of housing. Here in the UK the solution was envisaged by war-time prime minister Winston Churchill in March 1944, and legally outlined in the Housing (Temporary Accommodation) Act 1944.

Quickly built homes for all those made homeless by the Blitz, they were the perfect solution to the post war problem . The were single story prefabricated homes. The populous affectionately called them the prefab.

    We had an entire estate of them in Poole, and they were still there in the late 70s.
    When I moved away to live on the outskirts of Bath, the estate where I moved to had previously had fifty or so prefabs which had been replaced by neat little retirement bungalows.

    After World War II, The GI Bill in the US made home ownership really easy for veterans, and we had lots of suburbs spring up as if by magic to fill the demand. Some were pretty well-built…

    This is a lesson well taught. (And nice use of the acrostic, too.) Nice post!
