1900s Victorian Cottage (7 Pics)

This little cottage is a perfect example of a Victorian home, which can often be found in British colonies like Sydney, Australia. The Victorian Era marked a housing boom for the "middling-classes" and the poor. This cramped home is considered a "worker's cottage."
As a British colony, Sydney was pulled into WWI in 1914. This house would have been occupied during that time. Who knows what prompted the family to leave.

Two chamber pots can be seen in this photo. In Victorian times, indoor plumbing was very unusual. Most toilets were still located in an outhouse. These pots would have been used for "night soil."
