1940s Farmhouse Kitchen

By Hurstbourne
23 Kirkgate, Thirsk, North Yorkshire is now a museum but was where Mr. J.A. Wight ran a veterinary practice alongside Mr. D V. Sinclar. Alf Wight is the world-famous author of the James Herriot books. This is a reproduction of a typical Farmhouse kitchen in the 1940s and very similar to those that Alf Wight would visit whilst doing his rounds as a vet. The farmers would tell him stories about their lives as they sat around the table over much appreciated refreshments and many of those stories would then be retold in his James Herriot books.

This reminds me of my aunt Charlottes cottage when I was a child we went for two weeks holiday I always remember her in a pinny she cooked on a huge range with three ovens and the large dining table always had something to eat on it.

This is a lovely image
