Here is the continuation of the museum "Terroir à Villeneuve d'Ascq" which had been a farm, transformed into a museum showing the tools, furniture etc, used in the beginning of 1900. Some of the tools I showed in last Wordless Wednesday
The bed of the farmer's couple seemed a bit small to me ! Probably the people were little
Instead of taking a shower and go to the restroom, you have to wash yourself in the porcelain bassin and the "piss pot" was under the bed.
my grandma still had such a sewing machine
The baby had it's craddle
and the dining room was in the kitchen
The pots were very heavy
and there was already running water !
Some people the life here as "good old times", I personally prefer a big bed, a shower, a toilet and a microwave or easy cookers !!
