oVictorians viewed their homes as the outward expression of
their internal qualities
Your house would reflect all your good characteristics—
having a decent income, being thrifty
It was something everyone could see—allowed
everybody to see your good character
oHad a prohibition against excessive displays of wealth—show
it off, but be modest
oVictorians tended to have very busy homes—wanted to
express your culture, but you always wanted to have comfort
Tended to show off books, artifacts from travels
oVictorians also liked to socialize in their homes
oBefore 1820s and 30s, the idea of a single family home did
not really exist in the cities
Originally, employers would provide room and board
However, as businesses grew, employees were forced
to begin looking for their own housing
Employees would start single family homes
without anybody in them
Family used to be anybody under your roof
or who you hung out with
The idea of the nuclear family evolves from the idea
that there is a separation of work from where you live
You have the home become an emotional place,
and the office building become the center of
production/productivity.
With workers and employers living in homes, you end
up getting a spatial segregation of the city, with better
areas and worse areas.
People can still walk around at this time, even
though the separation of work and family has
taken place
With the development of the streetcar system, you have
suburbs expanding and therefore you get people
moving farther out (spread of Victorian homes)
