As I had mentioned before, we are always looking for antique photos that illustrate the every day use of some of the exhibits you can find in the musem.
Our Art Oxford “Laurel” base burner stove, made by the Gurney Foundry Ltd. Toronto, Ont., has been a favourite with visitors and is centrally located in our 1890’s General Store.
So imagine our delight when we found a picture showing a base burner stove, very similar to ours, being used in a general store! How neat!
Below is the antique picture, as well as a picture of our stove which can be seen at the Horseless Carriage Museum.
