Tara, Did you ever see other women scrubbing their doorstep? The ones l remember doing it wore crossover pinafores with a headscarf tied up at the front on their head!

My Gran had a kitchen range, much like those in the pictures and used to black lead hers regularly until well into her 80s.

In my 20s I lived in a flat which had a real fireplace...it was a chore maintaining and cleaning it but I love a real fire.
