It’s cold out. When I saw this picture in our Digital Archive (http://ift.tt/1Dn4XI8), I was extra glad that I live in a house with central heating and insulation. This 1890 photo shows Robert Millen’s wooden house, with a central fireplace. Inside, you can just about make out a woman and can certainly see two children. It’s not very large. It doesn’t look very warm, not in this weather. It’s typical of its day, and its place (the Bay St. and Albert area, here in Toronto). Brrrr!
