The 1950s and 60s saw wide scale demolition of old properties which were replaced, in many cases, by large scale housing estates and tall multi story blocks of flats. The councils, and the architects they hired to design these schemes, had a vision of the future but how did it turn out in practice? More…What were their real motives? Ask students to use the Images by Theme 1950s/60s Buildings and search the image database to select images of flats and council housing. They can select and record information, using the recording sheet to organise their findings.
