54. Iodide Street Row Cottages - c1890

Iodide Street Row Cottages.png

This early row of cottages were originally built as low-cost housing for BHP miners and their families. The two-room cottages were built of timber and corrugated iron. The rooms were small: a living room on one side and a bedroom on the other. There was originally no bathroom or kitchen, so residents shared a communal facility. 

This part of Broken Hill has been redeveloped, but its heritage buildings, like these cottages, have been preserved.
