Address: Back to Back Housing , Toxteth, L.8 - 1900

  Affectionately known as 'Courts', these properties were typical of the slums for the masses either side of the town centre around Great George Street (in front of the Anglican Cathedral) and Vauxhall Road.

They were rented by the room and had outside communal toilets (seen at the end of the alley) and communal water pumps which were only switched on for about an hour each day.

They were crammed so close together that the occupiers whitewashed the outside walls to gain some reflected light.

As described in "A History of Liverpool" in the year 1907

No regulations existed to ensure that these houses should be healthy and substantial. They were erected back to back, with no proper provision for air and light, and no adequate sanitation ; and they were often so shoddily built that in 1823 a violent wind blew many of them down, and for the first time awoke the council to the necessity of taking precautions. Thus arose those terrible slum areas to the north and south of the town, with which the municipal government has been striving ever since.

In the old quarter of the town the houses deserted by the merchants or thriving tradesmen came to be crowded by a swarming multitude of poor people. The cellars once used as warehouses became the homes of whole families. Even the cellars of houses inhabited by well-to-do tradesmen were commonly let out as dwellings. In 1790 a careful survey of the town showed that there were 8,148 inhabited houses, of which 1,728 had inhabited cellars. In these appalling abodes no less than 6,780 persons dwelt, being almost four persons to every cellar, and considerably more than one-ninth of the total population of the town. Imagination quails before the picture of squalid misery suggested by these figures. And inevitably a population living in such conditions was unclean and unhealthy. In 1823 no less than 31,500 cases were treated in the dispensaries and the infirmary, that is to say almost one in four of the population

So, not much change here, then!
