Hey, gang. I'm in the early stages of plotting out a book with a co-writer, and running into a wall. Our setting is a public boarding school in a fictional England town in the 1850s-60s (our timeline is pretty flexible so long as it's before crackdowns on Opium started). I'm having a difficult time figuring out what the plumbing situation would have been as far as baths and toilets. Would they still be relying on outdoor toilets? I'm assuming workers and lower-classman would be in charge of bringing in waters for baths.

If it matters, it's a wealthier school. And, honestly, anything about boarding schools in that time period in general would be great. I've found stuff from the early 1800s and the early-to-mid 1900s, but this specific time period is proving a little more difficult.

ny links and/or resources would be hugely appreciative!
