This Victorian cottage is a great representation of the typical working class housing of about 120 years ago. Ornamentation was very much in vogue in those days and even a modest home like this one would have the brackets and fans and decorative trim work that one might see on a larger structure. This example is particularly nice because so much of the interior woodwork is extant and unpainted which really affords one the opportunity to get a good feel for the home’s original ambiance.
