Pot bellied stove 1

there wasn't much inside, but each of the three main rooms had a pot bellied stove. People often bemoan the fact these "perfectly good" houses aren't rehabbed, but I wonder which of those would be willing to stoke one of these on a cold winter night.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

Pp It’s a fine picture of this old stove. I’ll bet people were willing to stoke it with some wood when it was cold enough.

Those old stoves last forever. It would probably still warm up the house really well. A great black and white image.

Splendid tones and contrasts captured here! My in-laws had one in the living room and we would roast!

Willingness would depend on how long the fire would last between stokes. I think this is a really cool old store, a real find.

No way would I want to feed this monster. When I was a kid, we had a coal fired furnace. I didn’t enjoy feeding it or cleaning out the clinkers.

this place must have been abandoned a very long time ago in order for multiple stoves to still be in the house
