This is part of the series, The House on High Street. The entire series is indexed here.
Here is the old original kitchen, with its fireplace, andirons, and cranes (hard to see in this poor quality photo, which is a digital photograph of an old print that had been taken in pre-digital days. Clicking on it helps show some blurry details). We had removed almost all the layers of the old wallpaper from the walls at this point, and were starting on plaster repair to the walls. To the right of the fireplace opening, you can see the little door, formerly wedged in over the opening to the beehive oven, and now just leaning up against the oven.
Here is the only "after" picture I am able to find right now, taken from a newspaper article about the play that was written about the house as a stop on the Underground Railroad. That's the new owner with his banjo. This man loves the Kelley House so much that he has vowed that he will live there until he dies.
The pot hanging from the crane was one that was found behind the little door.
