Workman's Cottage

A Working-man's Model Cottage

"Our object, in this design, is to give the greatest amount of accommodation and convenience, at the smallest cost, for the dwelling of a large family who live in a very simple and economical manner. While the exterior is, therefore, very plain, the least possible ornament being used, there is still an expression of symmetrical beauty, and a certain cheerfulness of external effect. It is certainly a cottage which will convey an idea of taste int he occupants, so far as the exterior is concerned." [Downing, 96.]
