Floor plans for a house on a Victorian housing estate

The following are room plans for a typical Victorian or Edwardian terraced house as it was in the early 20th century. They were drawn to scale by John Cole, based on his recollections of a similar house on the Huxley Estate in the 1940s which belonged to a rather elderly resident who had probably kept things much as they were over the years, and a 21st century estate agent's measurements of a house in Lopen Road.
