The solution to the current housing crisis was hiding in the National Library Photographic Archives all this time and nobody knew it! Mrs. Moore of had her house built for the cost of £5 and even allowing for inflation that would be more than manageable today - I think:-D
A nice wee cottage, all newly whitewashed with chickens and dare I say it a dog in the yard, what more could Mrs. Moore, or anyone else ask for?
