Here’s some nostalgia in an old-fashioned kitchen:
Were things as good as they seemed? The old days are often shown on TV and in movies and they look great. Everything is done in a grand, traditional, decent way as well as being very professionally filmed. However, imagine working a twelve hour day in one of these. Lots of damp towels and sheets therefore lots of moisture and no modern air conditioning systems to compensate. Every single function in this large kitchen would be manual. Cooking, cleaning and ironing were hard manual tasks.
