Traces of the Past Y4 01

Here goes for a Maginot fort kitchen from more than 70 years ago…. don’t think I’ll have dinner cooked there, thanks

Kitchen in a WWII Maginot fort

  1. I bet they could have knocked you up a tasty soup, Sue! 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. So interesting–thanks for the photo. Being in such severe cold recently makes me understand better what folks had to do for survival in difficult times–this is one version of it.

  3. You’ve caught this really well Sue. Like you, I’m not sure I fancy it for dinner, but I have to say it’s a fair bet tidier than mine is at the moment!!

  4. Hard to imagine how much labour was involved to pre[are a meal in the olden days!

  5. Thanks for this extraordinary insight, Sue. Well captured but it does indeed look bleak. Makes me think of cold mushy peas for some reason.

  6. Pretty state of the art stuff for the time I guess. Shame the Germans had such good tanks and tactics 🙂

  7. There’s a family heirloom or two there, Sue. Or p’raps not! 🙂 🙂 Very atmospheric shot.

  8. Lovely light – and I’d be more than happy to eat a meal cooked up here., unless of course that would mean eating the dust of th ages. Not unlike a few kitchens I know here in the bush.

  9. I think I wouldn’t mind some stew… i think it’s great for cooking leg of lamb.

  10. Such a gorgeous capture, Sue! Lovely tones and ambiance. 🙂 I would opt not to have my dinner cooked there, but it is a very photogenic sight.

  11. Never enter the kitchen of your favorite eatery…

  12. Fabulous lighting 🙂

Over to you...
