I wonder what is underneath this man's left foot?
Anyone else curious?

I was refering to the picture of the old man and the stove. Don't recall which page.

Nice find Larry.

Maybe a simple board so his rocker stops before hurling him forward into a hot stove when he's leaning forward to getting out that rocker so near to that hot stove???

Likely a "bed warmer" brick.

In the days before central heating, often people would leave some type of brick, or heavy tile, on the floor close to a stove, or fireplace, during the day to absorb heat. Then at night they wrap it in a towel and place it under the covers at their feet to help warm their feet.

Brick and stone can store quite a bit of heat, and unlike metals, they tend to give off that heat at a slower, more steady rate. ;)

I should have thought of that as many times as I've heard my mother tell stories of grandparents using stones to warm the kids feet while in bed. Thanks for the reply.

Got a bit wet and chilly today so I figured now is as good a time as any! I threw in a 1/2 pot full of cowboy charcoal in just to take the chill out of the house for a few hours😜

Hope everyone had a great summer, and looking forward to settling up with Skip on a couple items😇. Sorry for the delay Skip, the airplanes have been kicking my azz for the past 8-9 months 🤯.

Couldn't hold out, could you boss? No self control. :lol:
What a stellar lookin stove. Reminds me of old Abe, with his top-hat on.
The weather sure has been crappy, huh Scott? I though about throwing something in my stove, but my wife would've been ticked if her little dog went missing. (Oh, chill out. Was just kidding) :roll:
