Spent some time googling for the 19th century bathrooms. In ref. to:
Was hoping to find something pre-1875ish. Failed miserably. Found a website with a few interiors, which are below. If you see anything interesting in those photographs, please share your finds.

KD: If you stumble across anything interesting as far as pre-1875 interiors go, or if you come across a bathroom photo, please post.

I don't think you are going to find a bathroom brother. According to wiki the water closets weren't moved inside the house until 1850. Chamber pots and pit latrines for the poor and garderobes for the rich...A lot of Victorian style homes had to be retrofitted with a bathroom by using existing space in the foyer or formal room and upstairs by the space of a bedroom...
