Be prepared for a little bit of everything! Potential for 93 years of remodeling and "Do-It-Yourselfers" should be interesting. Probably knob-and-tube wiring remnants and possibility of asbestos linings in knob-and-tube "junction boxes" and asbestos pipe and/or duct wrap. May even see some lead piping, probably on the drainage side. (Problem if on supply side) I've also seen remnants of old gas light fixtures from this period and earlier. Brick foundation also a possibility. Multiple layers of roofing and window with weights and sash cords, just a few items!
Heating system could be anything from coal burner to High Efficiency Gas! Probably some weird in between combination.
Enjoy the experience and maybe allow yourself some extra time to analyze some of the things you are going to see.
Let us know how things go and what unique things show up!
Have a GREAT day!!
