Victorian houses were built in a time when not many people had cars. In fact it was only towards the end of the Victorian period that cars were even invented.

So .

Victorian houses were built without garages as there was no need for a place to store a car.

Victorian houses have chimneys because they often had a fireplace in most rooms. The fire was the only way to keep warm. Today, houses are built without chimneys because houses are kept warm via central heating. Most modern houses have radiators in each room instead of a fireplace.
