45 Vintage Photographs of People Outside Their Houses in the Early 20th Century

Unlike the smaller, darker Victorian homes, Edwardian houses were more squat, wider and roomy, with bigger hallways and more windows. It’s common for an Edwardian property to have a front garden and be set back from the pavement, as there was an ever-increasing desire for privacy at that time.

These amazing photos were found by Gail Durbin that captured people outside their houses in the 1900s and 1910s.
