Example of an old working class kitchen

Working Class Victorian Kitchen

Depicts a 'Back to Back' type terraced property, exhibited as a walk in display, giving the visitor a real feel of a kitchen during the Victorian period and beyond. On display is a 'Singer' pedal type sewing machine, a large sink with wash boiler to the side and a gas cooker. Items which all would have most likely found their way into the 'Middle Class' homes of the Victorian period, before eventually making their presence in the less 'well off' homes of the working class.

A modern touch is a film projected onto what would have been the chimney breast, showing interviews with people currently living in the 'Back to Back' homes of Leeds.
