A Victorian Worker's Family Kitchen

The kitchen of a Victorian worker's home.  The stone flag floor would have been cold and so the family would have made rag rugs to cover some of the floor.  The black kitchen range is the only source of heat for the whole house.  Note the flake rack hanging from the ceiling in front of the range.  This is where havercakes would be hung to dry.
