A hundred years ago, people would meet around the fireplace to keep warm, exchange stories, and share a warming drink. Some things never change.

Other participants in Mass Observation may be found here.

Jothindra What a beautiful place for a chitchat on a cold winter's day, Mr. Ignelson!

Jarvo Nice picture. And for those who have a centrally heated house without a fireplace, you can buy one of these and meet around the tele.

GKorts :-) I just imagine Brenda sitting in that chair, covered in a nice quilt spinning the wheel and grandkids sitting at her feet listening to the old stories. You have got my old brain working so it must be an excellent shot :-)
