Sunderland cottages on Dunbar Street
Sunderland cottages on Dunbar Street
This street which runs south from Chester Road consists of a good example of the Sunderland Cottages. These single storey terraced houses in long streets are a very distinctive style of housing in Sunderland. Numerous examples were built around the city from the mid C19 to the 1930's. They were a cost effective way to house the expanding population working in the shipyards and the mines. Mostly occupied by the more skilled workers, there was a high percentage of owner occupancy from the start.
