1963+ bumpers, pimped Austin or Morris Mini Super deluxe [ADO15] - nothing to suggest Cooper.

Is the "shed" a pre-fab residential bungalow - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_post-war_temporary_prefab_houses ? Very few survive now and usually have preservation orders.

:think: Recently I've seen a TV-reportage about an estate of the originals of these, built in the late 40ies by German POW's. The inhabitants were very satisfied and fighted against the immenent demolition. It was in or around London, IIRC.

Btw: this type of wodden barracks was specially constructed in WWII for the purposes of the Wehrmacht http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baracke and yes, it was among other usages also used in concentration camps. It was designed by a team of architecture students in Weimar around 1940. One of those was my grandmother.

"Prefabs" were built in most towns in the UK, to counter the severe housing shortage of the immediate post WW2 period, caused not just by war damage, but by the fact that few new houses were built in the 30s, due to the economic situation. The town I grew up in still has a street of the two story type, but they are hardly recognisable as such, having received brick cladding, new windows and roofs.

Most of them were demolished and the ground used to build new social housing to replace them, as there was asbestos insulation used in the original construction of many, and it would have been easier to knock down than to get rid of the asbestos while leaving the house to be reused.

The example shown on the link to Wiki in Wake Green Rd Birmingham, is how I remember them.

Me too, because I used to walk along Wake Green Road to school - the terrace of them has a preservation order so they are still there and lived in. The river Cole runs along behind their back gardens, and a couple of hundred yards downstream is Sarehole Mill http://www.bmag.org.uk/sarehole-mill which was a childhood playground and influence for JRR Tolkein http://www.bmag.org.uk/sarehole-mill/tolkien . The Moseley Bog was a fantastic place to get muddy ....

I was nearly born in Edgbaston - the QE hospital maternity wing is fairly close.

I think the colour (Surf Blue?) suggests Austin rather than Morris, although the black roof is aftermarket as Surf Blue Super de Luxes/Coopers would have white roofs.

Plate looks something like AMF 546A = 1963, and made me think of this Morris Cooper S. But not the same car (although it could be in the same plate batch) - this colour is non-standard metallic, and with black roof and whitewalls on normal Mini wheels is not a Cooper S. Still looks interesting - maybe a mild Radford??? - and I think is Morris boot badge.

Also am convinced this is a pre-fab in these and other shots as matches other pre-fabs seen in the film; they may well be derelict (awaiting demolition?), has chimneys on each gable and it looks like an abandoned garden with typical corrugated iron/brick garden shed.
