Outside WC, rear of 4/5 Railway Terrace Stanley, Crook

  • Description

    "Outside W.C.s were commonplace before the terraced houses were modernised. In this case, the back yard and steps up to the WC or "nettie" had to be negotiated. A trip at night required a candle or a torch and a thick dressing gown and slippers in the winter (at 700 feet above sea level)." Photo by Tom Jolliffe, 1976.
