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.

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.
