I wouldn't fancy polishing those copper kettles and pans. Three pristine ovens - beautifully captured Nick!

v1 is a colourful classic - 2 and 3 are excellent record shots. With all the prevailing cookery programmes I am sure a TV channel would like to see these.

So very clean - think of all the hard work and elbow grease that the housewife had to use!! Don't think they could have been this pristine when in full use!! Excellent shots.

Fascinating and well captured. At least I just might be able to use the range in either V1 or V3, but good heavens, how did anyone manage to work V2? So glad I don't face cleaning any of them though Tongue

Just as I suspected Nick.
Carole has you stuck in the kitchen while she is out getting her flower pics !!
Dunno how you have time to do the cooking though,with the amount of time you spend polishing the range !!
Good pristine set.

Vs 1 and 3 are my favourite, what wonderful pieces of history, so pristine, but then they aren't being used, but I'd love to have a go at cooking on a range.

Oh how wonderful . A lovely range and the copper gleams . My Grandad had a range like that . Twice a week he made the most delicious Bread . I said how do you know when its done Grandad ? He said when it's brown it's done and when it's black it':s B***eredSmile After Grandma Alice died about 15 year's later he took a new wife . She insisted on a gas stove so out went the old rangeSad
