Read narratives using the images from the exhibit.

  "In eras past, farm kitchens rarely boasted the contemporary conveniences of their urban counterparts.  Imagine trying to set up a household in a rural area with no electricity and no running water. Your possessions would be few, likely hand-me down items such as a stove, a bed, a wooden table, a few chairs and perhaps a small but efficient cupboard."
