Rare Historical Photos of American Homes from the early 20th Century

The standard American new home of 1900 had 700 to 1,200 square feet of space, with two or three bedrooms and one or (just about as likely) no bathrooms. It was probably a two-story house.

Below are some amazing historical photos that show American homes from the early 20th Century.
