Thank you for your interesting reply, with information that we would not have known if we had relied solely on the 1958 map for reference.
In 1911, all of the properties in Arthur Street are shown to have 3 rooms.
The following note is shown on the Census for each house in Arthur Street:
Don, this is where we need your help again, please.
Did Arthur Street have a sitting room/cum kitchen with range, or did they have a separate kitchen? Because the note says to count the kitchen as a room.
I suspect they had a sitting room/cum kitchen with a large range, and no separate kitchen, unless, as you mentioned, occupants built their own.
If there was no separate kitchen, then the room downstairs must have been counted as one of the 3 rooms shown on the Census.
Don, Harvey Street is also shown as having 3 rooms; do you know if these were the same size and layout as those in Arthur Street: ‘Two bedrooms upstairs and one room downstairs which led to a pantry’?
Alas, the 1939 Register does not show the number of rooms in each house.
In your time at Arthur Street there were no extensions, so we can deduce from this, that there were none in 1914 when Carol’s grandparents lived there.
