Anderson  Shelter

"This photo is myself and my deceased sister, Irene, with the old Anderson Shelter at the back of us, used as the 'coal house'."

"At this time, around 1950, the small village of Gilmerton started to expand.  Prefabs were built at Ferniehill, Moredun and Craigour.  Then, the council houses were built at Gilmerton Dykes ,Moredun etc."
