Overhead

Notice the clothesline over the stove. Extra benefit extracted from the heat -- assuming the clothes didn't fall on the stove and burn.

Amazing quality

I am very familiar with 35mm film, and this guy is simply amazing. In fact, I have a real hard time believing that this is not a larger format given the tonal quality of the image, never mind the detail. Just extraordinary!

Garrett County

My mom's family lived in Garrett County for 150 years. Nice stove.
