larbert Kitcjen Range
The Labert kitchen range and large copper kettle.
Part of the Greenwich Borough Museum collection.

Small, cast-iron kitchen ranges were used in many homes from the 1860s to the 1930s. They were made to fit into fireplaces. The smoke went up the flue and into the chimney. The range had a coal stove, an oven and one or more hot plates. Coal was put in from the top by lifting out the hot plate. As well as providing heat for cooking and hot water, the stove was often the only source of warmth in the house.
