Roseland Cottage

The Upstairs Bath

This little room was not a bath when Roseland Cottage was constructed—plumbing like this didn’t exist. People were using privies and chamber pots. Nor would most people have a window on an interior bathroom wall. The window lets light into the second-floor hall. This may have been Henry Bowen’s office initially. It is connected to the room we believe was his bedroom, which connects to Lucy’s room through the sitting room.
