Sunderland cottages

Sunderland expanded rapidly during the Victorian era, as it became a centre for coal-mining and shipbuilding. To provide housing for workers, streets of terraced bungalows were built and then sold to skilled workers who could afford to buy them. This was a different approach to many other towns and cities, hence this type of housing is called "Sunderland cottages".
