Terrible conditions indeed ,some things have certainly changed for the better.  That first one reminds me a lot of my grandads Living room when I was a little fella only difference was that his was in the Cellar, and although not quite as bad as shown in the second pic it reminds me a lot of our Kitchen ,also in a Cellar with A Belfast sink and just one cold tap in it,,,the only tap in the house.

Interesting pics MOJO showing that some buildings were not fit enough to be lived in.  I don't know how they coped but they did and were probably happy with their lot because they didn't know any different.  Most people were in the same boat.

I can remember similar scenario's,myself (I think we talked about this on M.L.?) But one point I would make is,that though many lived in these sub-standard houses,not everyone chose to live, quite like the people who lived in this accomodation!

I know what you mean MOJO . A bit of Soap & water , a scrubbing brush, and a Tin of Paint doesnt cost a fortune, some cases were beyond that though , with Damp  walls with plaster falling off these walls and ceilings..many were Rented through uncaring private Landlords  at a Time when Tenants rights were pretty much non existent.

True,but it contradicts the "step-scrubbing" approach,taken by many,if not most!
         I think I mentioned on M.L. the flat we lived in,in Parliament st.where you had to cross into the back room,to turn the light on in the front room/hall!  Laughing
