This section has a vast display of household items from the past.

Some of the many sewing machines on display.

Remember the treadle sewing machine?


Shacklock wood and coal burning stove. These were common in households up to the mid 1950's. Oven on the left and fire box at the right. The kettle always at the boil for a cuppa and enamel pot was ideal for cooking stew. The coal bucket is shown to the right and in front of the stove.
