166 Mile End is an example of medium-low income typical house of the last decades of  19th Century and gives a hint of the likely insalubrious living conditions of that period: high density, small dedicated spaces for each family in the house, lack of ventilation and no access to a backyard or garden. These types of conditions necessitated public spaces and gardens, seen for example in the nearby Hayfield gardens and Stepney Green, which partly compensated for these restrictions.
