Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 63

The infamous courtyard slums of Liverpool are gone. No more the short tunnel leading into a narrow courtyard rimmed with opposing three-story tenements, each room housing a family and all sharing two earth closets at the far end of the courtyard, next to the "slop tap," the only source of water. This kind of housing was banned in 1864, when Liverpool had 3,000 courtyards housing 110,000 people. A thousand courtyards survived into the 20th century, and the last was demolished in the 1960s. In its place, Liverpool today has thousands of 2-bay, two-story terrace homes--"two up, two down"--like these along Rathbone Road.
