Bedrooms - no wall switch but a light

Just curious about others opinion.

98 YO house. all three bedrooms had a sconce light installed near the entrance into the room with a switch attached to the fixture.

Okay or should there be a wall switch?

common with that age me thinks…prolly some old wiring though…


Probably didn’t have electricity when it was built in 1923. So anything its got is an upgrade.


Thanks for the replies.

It did have active K&T.

I didn’t write up the lack of wall switches because the fixtures were so close to the door, but was curious of others thoughts on the issue.
