Relics of the age of coal?

Sunday 13 May 2012

I undertake some sorting-out in the coal-place. One of the things I find is several lengths of bamboo, tucked away along the left-hand wall. At first I can’t work out what their purpose could be. Then I realise that they probably were used for sweeping the chimney, in the days when the Old Man’s house had a coal fire in the living-room.
So those lengths of bamboo may have been in the coal-place for fifty years.
