I like the Shorpy website to look at all the old photos of people, cars, buildings, etc. I found a cool pic of an old interior building shot with a potbelly stove. Since I don't own the pic, I won't post it but here's a link for anyone who wants to take the time to look. Jerry
Edit, I looked at it again and it's from 1936 in an EL station in Manhattan.

Since I joined this forum I've made a point of looking in the backgrounds of all the old pictures, especially of the interiors of homes and businesses to see if I can see any old stoves. I was hoping someone on this forum could recognize the stove in this picture and give a little more insight into what we're looking at. It appears to be a fairly large unit, and I really like the chimney design, it's really smooth.
