The buildings represented by this model are typical of thousands of Victorian terraces built all over the North West of England. Originally, these houses had a “front room” (only used for special occasions!), a combination living room/kitchen at the back, and two bedrooms upstairs. There was no bathroom or inside toilet. In the back yard was a coal-house and fairly primitive outside toilet or Privvy. Rows of this type of terraces were built back-to-back, with their back yards separated by a cobbled alley, which provided access for the dustmen (and in earlier times, the “night soil” collectors
By the 1950s, most of these houses had been modernised to some extent, with an inside bathroom/toilet furniture from the BAM Store Website, and often a rear extension to house a more modern kitchen. Many still appear in this form, and that is the way these models are presented.
