And who lived in the attics?

Middle Gordon 6

 

Large family homes in Gordon Road, built, I would guess, about 50 years after the one I showed yesterday.  Up on the top floor would have been the children, probably, and the ‘Parlourmaid’ who was really the ‘Maid of all work’ although I think it is quite likely these homes might have had to make do with someone who ‘did’ for several homes and lived out.
