The picture is of Salt River, which is a working-class community on the edge of the city centre. It was originally constructed around 1900 to house industrial and railway workers. I think at that time the property developers were more concerned with packing in as many houses as they could and there wasn’t much in the way of zoning and planning regulations. Also, I suspect in many cases the houses were originally just the front part along the street, and the rear parts were built later over what had been the yard.
