The caption to this image reads: A particularly fat and well worn besom in front of the range: a very posed photograph of the 1890s.

A poorly but decently clad girl sits by a fireplace holding a pair of bellows.  A besom broom leans against the wall.  Above the fireplace the mantlepiece holds china ornaments and photographs.  More framed photographs are on the wall along with a large clock. Buy this book.
