Why were concrete gutter used?

They were used as they were a cheap approach to replacing the iron gutters used in house builds as steel was at a premium between 1950 and 1970. Concrete gutters were considered to be lower maintenance guttering.

Concrete Finlock gutters are comprised of two troughs, lined up horizontal. One of the troughs is visible, and the other is against the wall to cover the cavity. They range in length dependant on application and range between 200mm and 250mm. They are usually reinforced with iron rods and sealed with bitumen. Bitumen is thick liquid material used for surfacing roads and roofing due to its waterproofing nature and corrosion resistance.
