These amazing photographs give incredible insight into how Britain was transformed in the 1950s following the devastation of the Second World War.
Published in a new book, the images show the low-cost housing that sprung up as the government began a huge building programme.
Clement Attlee’s Labour government built more than a million homes, many to replace those destroyed by the Nazis during the Blitz.
Other shots show children playing in the street in a new community, builders laying the foundations for the new homes and a hotel with crowds of cars parked up outside it, displaying the new-found wealth people were enjoying.
The stunning pictures are included in a new book, The 1950s Home, by Janet and John Shepherd and published by Amberley.
