Phil,
Long before my days of Caviar and Champagne started I lived in an old end of terrace condemned cottage in Handsworth, with a loo at the bottom of the common yard with a paraffin lamp or something like for keeping the pipes from freezing, a tin bath in the kitchen, a big crock sink and a mangle. It was a 1 up 2 down sort of place with an attic room at just a few steps up from the landing.

I don't remember any wash tub and there certainly wasn't a brew house as there were only 3 or 4 cottages in the row. I'm told they were called cottages. We moved out when I was 4 and they were demolished shortly after, which incidentally is what I did to the bully in the house at the other end on our last day there.

VM


If I drank less I would have more money left over for buying wine.
