Georgian house (the Water and Steam Museum)

The second house in order is this Georgian one.

Now there's pipes and sewages but they are still very simple. Fresh water only comes once a week!

There are potties, not toilets, everywhere. It's totally businesslike behaviour to have a pee whilst discussing important business matters!

Taking tea is the height of fashion and boiling the water makes it safe to drink.

The water pipes only go to the kitchen downstairs. Servants are still busy carrying jugs and pots up and down the stairs.

Special thanks for Chris Tatler for amazing photos(the best ones are by him).
