VERY newly built by the look of it! Do you know what year that photo was taken? We moved in to our brand new house in 1951. I suppose the estate did look that raw and bare before people had made gardens but I don't remember it looking quite that empty. I guess maybe I was too young to notice such things.

I think it was only a year or so before that.

Now that I own the house I grew up in, I can tell you that the land upon which many of the houses were built was bought by the corporation from farmer Jackson at Old Park Farm.
