    My house was built in 1892 and i don't think it had plumbing at all.

    @bingobongo445 You're probably right about that one. This is something we rarely mention, but homes built before the 1900s, might not have plumbing or electrical and if they currently do were installed years later.

    I live in is about 5 minutes west of Chicago,yet out here many homes had out houses as late as the 30's.That's because this was farm community until the post war housing boom of 50's.

    @bingobongo445 That's interesting and thanks for the information. That's a lot later than I imagined.

    That would be considered a vertical vent pipe. All vent pipes are angled to slope back to the drain they serve.  This plumber was a real tradesman and took pride in knowing how to use arithmetic.
