The Family Home

Laings Enfield West Estate
This is the brochure for the Laings Estate in Oakwood (Enfield West) where my parents bought the house they moved into after getting married. I was raised in this house at 70 Lonsdale Drive. The model they bought was the Rona (semi-detached) and cost them £805. Since my father was earning about £1 / 10 shillings a week at the time it was a lot of money.
