These twelve black and white photographs show the Gallagher residence in Hays. Kansas. The single dwelling structure is an example of a Lustron home. This pre fabricated enameled steel house was manufactured after World War II to help alleviate the shortage of homes for soldiers and their families. The original architectural prototype was a two-bedroom, 1,000-square foot home with an exterior sheathing made of 2-foot square steel panels. Later models included one bedroom and three bedroom homes.
