Coal miners might not seem the most likely of workers to enjoy the delights of shedworking but pictured above is a shed interior at a Rhyd-y-car house at the Museum of Welsh Life , furnished as it would have been in 1955. Here's what they say about it: "Sheds such as these were typical of the area and were used as a living- and work-room allowing the room in the house to be kept as best. Most of the older men were still employed as coal-miners, but young couples, as envisaged here, were beginning to work in factories such as Hoover." --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Monday posts are sponsored by garden2office, the Swedish garden office specialists.
