Do You Remember...the Wooden Hut at the back of the garden that qualified as Student Accommodation?

Wooden huts aka Chalets were erected in back gardens by many house-owners in Galway City during the 1970s to serve as student accommodation units. They normally consisted of one small bedroom, a kitchen/dining room and a toilet/shower closet.
Damp and drafty for most the year, they absolutely froze during the winter!
Heating was normally provided by a small mobile fume-oozing Calor Kosangas heater.
