Those are good -- but you need explain why YOU believe they're unusual.
For the smell -- where did it come from? What caused it? Horses, infrequent baths?
For the houses -- consider that they were usually small with only one or two rooms. Two or more people shared a bed. Fleas were rampant.
You might also consider the fact that most children didn't go to school and often were out working by the age of 10 or so.

i believe that these are unusual because in life today the streets are more cleaner, the air/smell today is full of good fragrance, the houses are more brandnew and tidier and the clothing people wear today are in more fashion.
is this right?

in the 17th century the living quarters for ordianry people were small and cramped with whole families living in 1 or 2 rooms. many other people lived in dire poverty with little or no oppurtunity to improve their lives. people then had a lack of bathing and often wore dirty clothes. also they didn't have time to clean their personal area that much.
is this right
