West Pilton Place
with acknowledgement to Stuart Lyon, Blackford, Edinburgh
Thank you to Stuart
Lyon who wrote, sending me the photograph above of a house in West
Pilton Place in response to a question from Sonia Zhuravlyova
(Prefab Houses, Recollections 31) asking if there were any
remaining Swedish prefabs in Edinburgh.
"Houses such as the one in the photo

quicker than a traditional build. There are some of these up near
Wester Hailes too.
