Victory Mansions: The apartment building where Wilson lives. It was built in 1930 and is falling apart. Nothing, from the plumbing to the electricity, works right. The hallway smells like boiled cabbage and old rags.



Winston lives in a place call Victory Mansions which is in a place called Oceania located Airstrip One in London. The name insinuates that the place at one time or another used to be beautiful. It also would have been the kind of place where people would want to live because of the name alone says greatness. However at this point it is run down with broken windows, no heat and with plumbing that does not work most of the time.
