When trying to put together a table, I have a tendency to want uniformity (my natural OCD showing through), but pictures like this are a corrective. Whilst this was taken in 1960, it had remained fairly unchanged since the 1930s (the lacework brick wall may be newish); I especially like the chimney stacks & pots, the roof lines ..... The whole lot was demolished in the late 1960s - what Hitler failed to do - Developers & Southampton Corporation Planners managed to achieve ....

Gosh, what a mixture. My recollection of growing up in a terrace house was that all the houses were the same at the front but some had extended at the back to give an indoor lavatory and a larger kitchen.

The house that I live in now is close to 200 years old, & like most of the older cottages in the village was a semi built back to back with end gables to the road & front doors to side gardens (no back doors)
