Correct in Australia too, they date from before WW2 at least.
Terrace houses in Australia come from workers dwellings - cheap and small.
They originally had an outside toilet, no bathroom.
Some times the end ones were bigger, the end units were certainly preferred as you had a little more privacy and a little more land along side.
There are still a number of these around, now with preservation orders on them.

2 of these would fit inside one modern town house.
